THE FASHION BACHELORS OF ARTEZ

On Thursday the 7th of June I went to Arnhem to see the runway show of the collections of the graduates of ArtEZ, the Institute of Fine Arts. Yes, we have to be proud Dutchies. Damn, there's a lot of fashion talent in The Netherlands. Respect for the Bachelor Fashion Design graduates of 2012. Their final work is only just the beginning of their fashion future. And there was some real coolness and style for my eyes at that runway. I bet there is a big talent in 2012's bunch.


The show was held at a massive old building at an industrial park in Arnhem. A really cool setting: it was rough, yet stylish. The show started off with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Year Collections followed by, the highlight of the evening, the catwalk show of the collections of the 20 graduates. A cool mix of fashion: some renewing, some really outspoken, some bold, some classy and some rough.

Of course you will always have your favourites on a night like this. The once that caught my eye were the collections of Eefje Wijnings and Maxime Cartens.

Eefje's collection is called 'Hemiphere' and showed black and white pieces with brown details and amazing graphic work in shape and simple print. The collection was outspoken, but with tons of elegance.

Maxime's collection, named 'FIKA', on the other hand showed us cool use of fabrics in bold pastels with cool transparent detailing. This collection is wearable, but special. Because of the use of different fabrics and the amazing fit the overall looks really panache.









Julian Stips also needs a shout-out for his fun collection called 'Mood Mosaic'. Maybe it's because of my Spanish half (it's not a tan, I'm half Spanish), but his feminine high-class toreador inspired collection really stood out in the bunch.
