Zyanya Keizer - Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam
Zyanya Keizer stood out with the way she also played with thescenography, placing flour all over the runway it gave the show an extra touch of softness that somehow contrasted beautifully with the constructed garments.
Although it came across as there where too many ideas merged into one collection, the pieces she presented where well made and showed great potential.
In addition Zyanya used the opportunity to create awareness to repressed Albino's.
Zyanya works with Stichting Afrikaanse Albino's (African Albino Foundation) to create awareness to the oppressed albinos in Africa.
"HAVEN creates the suggestion of a 'safe place' and this is where everyone has the right to, as also the albinos in Africa who still are abandoned by their families and are followed by witch hunters for their body parts. This has to stop! With this show and through my collaboration with Stichting Afrikaanse Albino's I want to give attention to the repression of albinism."
