Hello, good morning! Yesterday was Vogue's Fashion Night Out in Amsterdam and a few other cities. It was the second edition in Amsterdam and from what I've seen it was a big success. Together, with one of my best friends, we walked to the front entrance of the Bijenkorf (a big department store here in the Netherlands) to have a celebrity welcome.
Inside you could find stands everywhere with food and samples. You were able to get a henna tattoo, to have a little photo shoot with a professional photographer and there was a Tommy Hilfiger photo booth.
At the top floor they had 'Moam talks' where Karin Swerink (editor in chief, Vogue) Sabrina Meijer (Afterdrk.com), Claes Iversen (fashion designer), Frans Molenaar (couturier), Olcay Gulsen (Supertrash), Puck & Hans, Remco de Nijs and Sjaak Hullekes were interviewed. I think I sat there watching/listening for about two hours straight, because it was so interesting!
They talked about the future for magazines or if the bloggers take over the market, if men in the Netherlands have some sort of fashion sense. If the clothes themselves are still relevant or if it is all about branding and marketing.
It's safe to say that I had an amazing night, I got to meet Olcay Gulsen and man o man I envy her so much! She is such an inspiration and a lovely lady. How you make something so successful out of literally nothing. I also talked to Puck of the duo Puck & Hans and she was quite funny. Before this evening I had never heard of them, but I looked them up online and they're legendary. If you want to know more about the duo you'd have to look the up online as well, because I can go on and on about them but that would be a little boring and the post will be too long as well.
When I got home I had so much energy and wanted to do something creative, read inspiring stories etc. So I hope that this evening will in some way help my creativity a bit and help me post more interesting posts for you.
Hugs and Kisses!
