Recap Day 9 @ Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam

12 JULY 2015, AMSTERDAM
Summary
Saturday was the ninth day of Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam. Caribbean Fashion Spot, MAYN, House of Byfield, Jonathan Christopher and Spijkers en Spijkers took their collections to the catwalk. At the same time the Zalando presents 10 Days Downtown event 'Matisse et la Mode' took place in the Stedelijke Museum.

The guests who were present in the Gashouder yesterday, had a taste of the Caribbean vibe during the Caribbean Fashion Spot show. Where fashion designers Atelier Doré, Beatrix Rodriquez, Charu Lochan Das, Gigliola Designs, Heather Jones International and Ms. Ray shared their vision on fashion.

The Amsterdam based fashion brand MAYN was hosted by Vodafone Fashion LAB in the Transformatorhuis. It showed how architecture and clothing can work together by using architectonic elements in their creations.

Carmichael Byfield showed his collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York in February. Yesterday he was in Amsterdam presenting Make-up Studio presents House of Byfield, a collection that inspires men to dress sporty and with an edge.

Contradictions in clothing were paramount in the S/S 2016 collection by Jonathan Christoper hosted by Vodafone Fashion LAB PRO. His surprising combinations inspired the audience.

Colour and graphic design were the two things the Dutch twins, Truus and Riet, showed in their L'Oréal Professionnel presents SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers catwalk show. 

Fashion and art melted together in the Stedelijke Museum in Amsterdam yesterday. During 'Matisse et la Mode', Liselore Frowijn showcased her collection in combination with the extraordinary art collection by Henri Matisse. This turned into a beautiful interaction between fashion and art. The influence Matisse had on art and fashion was highlighted by an interview between Liselore Frowijn, Milou van Rossum (fashion journalist NRC) and Bart Rutten (curator Stedelijke Museum), which led to very interesting perspectives on the artist. During the 23rd edition of the Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam, Zalando organises inspiring and accessible events throughout the city of Amsterdam.
