So I found myself in church on a friday night again for yet another fashion event; THE DUTCH FASHION AWARDS baby!! (I really wanted to open with a different picture, cuz lord knows I don't look that amazing here, but you know, I couldn't find something I really felt, so I just went with this)Yessir, yours truly was there... as the help (#fail). I've been sooo freaking busy (seriously, school is CRA-ZY), so I am not up-to-date (the DFAs took place like two weeks ago), but I still have a lot to share with you, so starting tonight I'm gonna hit you up with something new errday. ERRRDAY! But now let's get back to bizznizz #Leggoo
- this sparkling water from Peroni in a bottled designed by Bvulgari
- a book/magazine about the DFA 2011
- a notebook and set of postcards from.. (*runs to goody bag to check*) New Babylon
Of course you want THE JUIIIIICCCCCEEE! Well, I don't wanna be a gossip, so I'll keep it vague:
- Really? You're going to a freakin' awards show and you bring your suit case? You weren't even showing or nominated this year, son! SMH
I must say that the show itself is incredible. They really do a great job. The lighting and the runway are so international without trying too hard.
And I give all the credit in the world to the models, who have to remember those intriquite choreographies for each show. May I just say that the right music can make or break your show. The finale from one of the designers was just BEYOND! What it was? Just an army of young women walking on a runway at once on a hot beat. They most def were turnin' me on. And I also loved the speech from Maarten Spruyt, who won Male Icon Aaward. He asked the people to wear more colour, cuz all this black was depressing. FINALLY, someone in fashion who thinks just like me. I swear, sometimes, especially at school, its as if I'm the only one who loves bright colours. Let's bring back some colour you guys!!
So this was the woman who was both Ms. and Mr. Jay at the same time. She did the choreography before the show and during the show she was backstage, directing the fashion shows. The reason why I am a fan (besides the amazing shows.. although I must say that the routine from the guys was very Armani) should be obvious (hint: She just did it).
Net 5's Next Hair Guru, anyone? Spot the hair dresser! Yes, it is Maikel. The whole time I was trying to figure out if he was a model or a hair dresser, and now I finally know. I just don't get why hair dressers themselves always take it to such extremes. Either their hair is done to perfection, or they don't even bother to touch it. Think about it, there's no in between with these people.
And last but not least I want to dedicate this moment to my personal favourite of the night. This man.. Pfooeee, I am so happy Hyun Yeu from Ados Les Scents won the Dutch Incubator Award a.k.a. his collection will be sold at Bijenkorf next spring. Maybe I will have the chance to rock some of his amazing pieces.
THAT FUR!! O-M-G. That FURRRR! Shoot me, why don't you, cuz without it my life is incomplete. I'm not saying kill innocent little animals for it, but come one, that shit is soooo ill! I need ZARA to knock that ish off, so I can get my hands on it. That ish crazy. and that Red Coat too.. This is why I love this industry. Fashion, in your name I pray. AMEN.
P.S.: What they broadcasted on TV last week miss-represented the whole event. It didn't do it any justice. They might as well not have.
