MODEBELOFTE 2016 ‘Adaptive Travelers’

Monday, October 31st, 2016

It’s been thrilling as always to be part of the Modebelofte team, bringing the fiercest talents from the best international BA and MA fashion courses to Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. Although my part in this – textual curation, communication and hosting the Expert Meeting for fellow educators, press and designers – is peanuts compared to what it takes to put this show on the road. Shout out to the fabulous curator & event designer team Niek Pulles (Heyniek) and Harm Rensink, our superwoman project manager and PR queen Holly Syrett of GW Agency, the team responsible for all the trafficking, the graphic designers at and campaign photographer Imke Ligthart…. and of course the queen bee of them all, initiator Ellen Albers of You Are Here. Check out the Modebelofte 2016 ‘Adaptive Travelers’ site for all the wonderful participating designers and more.

Modebelofte 2013 ‘Future Fashions’

Monday, October 28th, 2013

During Dutch Design Week, from october 19 till 27 in Eindhoven, my lovely client – the award winning concept store You Are Here – organized the magnificent fashion talent exhibition ‘Modebelofte 2013 – Future Fashions’ in the historic and yet to be renovated barracks of the military police. The handsome location called Kazerne got a great kick start to it’s new life as a cultural hotspot. It was an honor to collaborate – copy wise – on the ‘Modebelofte 2013 – Future Fashions’ exhibit showcasing the phantasmagorical new tech and hyper crafted works by designers Ana Rajcevic, Duran Lantink, Jef Montes, Matija Cop, Mi-Ah Rödiger, Pauline van Dongen, Sadie Williams, Silvia Romanelli, Stephanie Baechler, Volker Koch, Wim Bruynooghe, Xiao Li, Dewi Bekker, Jantine van Peski, Jenny Postle, Laerke Hooge Andersen, Minju Kim, Winde Rienstra, Anastasia Radevich, Anne Vaandrager, Cat Potter and Rianne Suk. For this year’s Modebelofte, the team from You Are Here collaborated with Glamcult Studio, curator Hanka van der Voet and producers Lenn Cox and Gerard Koot.
