Events: UNIQUE GOODS AND CULTURAL DREAMS

The following post is written on January 26th, 2015. I wrote this post with a fellow student for our website Trendpit.nl . This post is about a downtown event during the Mercedes Benz Amsterdam Fashion Week January 2015.

Local goods and fashion, a nice combination on a Sunday afternoon. Walk around ‘De Hallen’ and you will see an amount of stands with fashion, jewellery and beauty products. But these products are not just regular products, you won’t find anything ordinary on this market. Every product, every label has a story waiting and wanting to be told. Vintage, homemade, organic, you name it. Every story is different but equally inspiring.

What we thought was most inspiring, was the ‘young designers’ area. A number of young individuals showed their designs and visions. Visions on design as well as their vision on life and how to live it; your way. Don’t worry about opinions or standards, dare to be different and ‘It’s ok to be fake’ . Also, the importance and inspiration of different cultures was shown, open up and see the world through different eyes. Be an individual and let the rest be individuals as well!

Judith van Vliet, a young fashion designer with a great passion for fashion. Judith showed pieces of her latest collection during the local goods market fashion edition. Her collection was made in collaboration with Chris van den Elzen. Chris designed the shoes, which are 3D printed. The clothes are inspired on decayed buildings, turning into pieces of stone covered in flowers, moss and plants. She finds the contradiction between organic things and architecture interesting, organic versus technology. Everything Judith designs is handmade and she does everything herself.

We’ve seen a lot of young designers who follow their dreams, create unique designs while being aware of sustainability.
