FRANS MOLENAAR PRIZE 2017

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Rietveld alumni rarely participated in this award installed by legendary Dutch couturier Frans Molenaar, simply because of mismatching schedules. But for the 2017 edition, they decided to change the procedure making it more realistic for my students to enter… and how. Not one Rietveld alumni won, but two! The jury was so excited they decided to add a second prize, one for Ninamounah Langestraat (who started her own label NINAMOUNAH, showing in Paris, London, New York and Amsterdam), the other for Boris Kollar (who proceded with a Master study Fashion Communication in Arnhem). 

GERRIT RIETVELD class of 2017

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

I could not be prouder of our graduates, and this year’s show was something special as we took it to the streets, under the ring road overpass in Amsterdam West, just across the street from WOW. The livestream of The Fashion Show 2017 should be still available HERE. The amazing artwork and communication for our graduation show was done by Rietveld graduates from the graphic design department, namely: Eduardo Leon, Nina Schouten, Steinarr Ingolfsson and Christophe Synak.

And here are some jaw dropping looks by our graduates, all photography by TEAM PETER STIGTER:
