Sadly but True Amsterdam Fashion Week has come to an end and while many fellow Bloggers, Editors and photographers are judging all the work of the various Designers I'm looking back to the fabulous Opening Night at my first day of Amsterdam Fashion Week. Finally I had loads of time to chit chat around, socialize and take a closer look at what The Dutch Fashion designers had to offer.
One of the shows I was really excited about was the show of Bas Kosters. Bas Kosters for me is one of my favorites when it comes to strong serious concepts with a twist. Compared to other Designers he always succeeds in turning the gray and cloudy Fashion industry into a Fun, cheery and Colorful existence and so he did in his F/W 12/13 collection called 1, 2 TREE.
The collection of 1, 2 TREE finds his roots deep in the thoughts of many people and also Bas's. More and more people are longing for better technologies and faster communications. Thinking about it, we feel empty without having our Blackberries or Iphone's but, is this what we really want ?? By seeing his collection the message was clear that we have to find a balance between the on-line world and our own world. An eye opener for many. Back to life, back to reality !! Well Done.
OH WE ♥ AMSTERDAM FASHION WEEK
