Today, I’m sharing my last report of Amsterdam Fashion Week. On the last day of MBFWA, I went to the shows of María Clè Leal and Alexandra Frida. Both shows were really inspiring! Of course, I took my camera with me again. I even managed to photograph Doutzen Kroes and Sunnery James, who were on the front row in the section opposite me. In this post, I’m showing you my photos of both shows. And I will share a little background information about the collections, and my favorite designs! I hope you like it!
Spanish designer María Clè Leal won the Mercedez Benz Fashion Talent award, and got to choose in which European city to show her collection. She chose Amsterdam! Doutzen Kroes (Dutch ex-Victoria’s Secret angel) was a special guest at this show. And as she was on the front row, in the section opposite me, I was able to get some shots of her as well! The show started with a modern dance. When the models entered the runway, the dancer continued to dance between the models. The collection is called ‘Fragile’ and it’s inspired by petals. You see this best in the silhouettes of some of the dresses. The collection exists of beige shades and bright pink. A surprisingly stunning color combo, if you ask me! My favorites from this collection are the long blue dress, the beige sweater with shoulder decoration and the beige dress with pink details.
Designer Alexandra Vollebregt gets her inspiration from people who are important to her. The SS16 collection exists of two parts; FRIDA and ANNA. FRIDA is an ode to her grandmother. Of all the collection I’ve seen this fashion week, I think this was the one with the youngest feel to it. The models were all wearing white sneakers, there were a lot of crop tops, co-ords, jumpsuits and notable socks, and some of the models had their hair up in a trendy half bun. I really loved this collection! I would certainly love to add some of these designs to my personal collection! I really liked that some of the dresses and jumpsuits had an open back. Also, the prints and bright colors really appealed to me. My favorites from this collection are the tweed co-ord set, the tweed jacket and the jumpsuit with the open back.
What do you think of these collections? And which of the items would you like to add to your collection?
