KABK Fashion Show 2015

Merel Bos
The Royal Academy of Arts The Hague (KABK) Fashion Show 2015

In past few years KABK has delivered multiple talented designers, such as Bastian Visch and Marije de Haan who won the Lichting award. Since 2013, avant-garde designer Jurgi Persoons leads the fashion and textile department, and considering the 2015 fashion show it is evident that KABK fashion department remains a relevant breeding place for aspiring designers.
The course curriculum has similiar structure as the Antwerp Fashion department. The fashion show started with 1st years experimental dresseswhere talents like Inge Vaandering emerge. 
Following the 2nd years historical costumes inspired looks and 3rd years ethnical inspired collections.
All together a display of potential in particular with the menswear collections, but also designers Jenske Sypkens Smit and Jade Van der Mark impressed with their collections (see images below).
Although always fascinating to see the visions of the creative minds of the future, it is the graduates who trigger the most. This year nine students presented their collections. Fabian Bredt opened the show with a strong presentation with more than 20 outfits, conceptual but yet a nice ready-to-wear menswear collection. Ruby de Bruijn presented a beautiful all white collection with beautiful details while Merel Bos blew away with her exotic collection 'Isolated collective Uniqueness'.  Nikki Duijst closed the show with impressive well-tailored and composed collection. Oliver Jehee's proposed a rebellious, Westwood-kinda vibe while Bram Vervoort showed promising menswear collection with commercial potential. Among the graduates there where also collections by designers Anne Oomen, Nienke Smeulders and Marlies van Stolk.
