Arnhem Mode Biennale 2011

Dear Friends,
Welcome to my world!
During this one month, I share my most precious memories and secrets with you.
I hope my world will inspire everyone and that you leave full of new ideas and impressions in the sun.
Much love,

Last week, just on time before Amber left, I made with my colleagues FASHIONCLASH a trip to Arnhem. We visited the main location, where Amber welcomed us with sweet letters.

On the press conference of the Arnhem Fashion Biennale 2011 on February 21, artistic director JOFF began the presentation by reading a letter addressed to fashion, the muse of the Arnhem Fashion Biennale. With this declaration of love was her name, and thus the title of the Arnhem Fashion Biennale 2011 Edition revealed. The letter read here.

There are several fashion initiatives in the Netherlands and we like to visit our colleagues but of all initiatives Arnhem Fashion Biennale is most precious to us because it shows fashion as art, and because it really inspires.

For one month Arnhem is dedicated to fashion and for this forth edition it was all about Amber, which stands as a metaphor and muse for fashion. Amber is the guide through the biennale, you can hear her, taste, smell and experience.

In the exhibition there were beautiful installation including Damir Doma, Jill Sander, Bless, Iris van Herpen, Rad Hourani, Klavers van Engelen, Maison Martin Margiela and also worj of emerging young designers.
One of the finest contributions was sure that AF Vandevorst. A girl lies on a hospital bed, but both the girl, the mattress and pillow are made of wax. What began as a perfect scenery on May 29, during the biennial melted away slowly. July 3 Amber left unfortunately but she has certainly left a mark in many hearts.

Just take a look at this wonderful work and installation.
Fashion is art, no doubt about that.
