The Future of Fashion
Emerging new talent came to the fore in an exciting display of graduate work from institutions including AMFI Amsterdam, ArtEz Arnhem and KABK Den Haag. Selected by Modefabriek and talent scout Carlo Wijnands, designers Laura Snijders, Nina Pen, Jessica Van Halteren were among those showcasing innovative proportional play and fabric manipulation.
Injecting a dose of sunshine into the palette, Sunlit Yellow is a key colour for SS19. At Modefabriek, the bold silhouettes of Kelly Geurden and Nathan Klein were amplified in head-to-toe yellow while footwear brand, Freedom Moses show how vibrant shades create impactful accessory accents.
A Rock ‘n Roll Statement
A strong graphic influence has been a feature of many of the season’s trade shows and at Modefabriek, summer’s rock festival scene provided the inspiration. The customization trend inspired hand painted slogans scrawled over chunky ‘bovver’ boots and block-printed onto black denim for a playful yet rebellious vibe.
