Dutch Fashion Awards 2012

Mattijs van Bergen presentation at Salon Maastricht
Mattijs van Bergen is the big winner at Dutch Fashion Awards 2012. He won the International Fashion Incubator Award 2012 and the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Award tonight in The Hague.
Hyun Yeu won the Dutch Fashion Incubator Award 2012. The Dutch Fashion Icon Femme and Homme awards went to Liesbeth in’t Hout and Carlo Wijnands.

During this evening there were more awards, the Cultuurfonds Mode Stipendium 2013 was presented. A cheque for the sum of 50.000 euro went to sisters Truus and Riet Spijkers from label Spijkers en Spijkers.
This grant, initiated in 2011 by an anonymous benefactor and included in the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, consists of an amount of 50.000 euro and a passed on trophy. This oeuvre-injection enables the chosen designer to develop himself on a business as well as an artistic level. The Cultuurfonds Mode Stipendium was presented for the first time in 2011 to fashion designer Ilja Visser. Francisco van Benthum received the Cultuurfonds Mode Stipendium 2012 in March of this year.

The annual Dutch Fashion Awards is a celebration moment for Dutch fashion. It is a ‘bullet time’ scene starring the best of Dutch fashion, created to assemble the Dutch fashion field and to boost innovative design. The Dutch Fashion Awards call the attention of the international fashion industry to the highest level of Dutch fashion talent and connects fashion creativity with commerce.
