It seems like just a few weeks ago I posted my last Instagram report, about the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition in Rotterdam. It’s been a few months though, time for another one! Last Saturday I met up with Anita (Ange Deforme) in Arnhem to visit the Fashion Biennale. It was our debut at the biennale, but since the main exhibition is called ‘Fetishism in Fashion’ it was something we just had to see. We had a great time and spotted some of our favourite designers. To witness all the beauty of the exposed garments you should definitely visit the exhibit yourself if you have a chance, but if you’re not able to do so you can scroll down and enjoy my report. The Fashion biennale lasts until the 21st of July. Enjoy!
The exhibit starts in a ‘Mood Room’ which is more or less a gigantic mood-board curated by Lidewij Edelkoort (a famous Dutch trend watcher) who designed the exhibit and picked the theme. You can image I felt a bit underdressed seeing this while wearing ‘just’ my Jeffrey Campbell black suede Lita’s ;)
After the Mood Room, which is based in the basement, you have to go to the top floor of the (beautiful) building for the start of the exhibit. This is the view from the rooftop terrace, loved it!
I was too excited to see this piece in real life, since I pinned it like a thousand times on Pinterest already… It’s stunning!
Ah, Iris van Herpen. My favourite Dutch fashion designer!
Another one of my Dutch heroes: a photograph by Erwin Olaf.
Anita trying to capture every inch of the cute Gareth Pugh dress (and lovely gloves, I want those badly!).
Bas Kosters’ clothing always gets a smile on my tummy… eh… face!
A video of Daphne Guinness changing her contacts. I wish this was my screensaver.
Such a lovely coat, I would totally wear this!
This on the other hand… Not so much ;)
Love at first sight.
Another Iris van Herpen dress, love this one too.
This must be the shiniest corset I’ve ever seen!
Are those… My Little Pony heels? So cool! If I would be Lady GaGa’s personal shopper I would add both of these shoes to my basket ;)
The exhibit’s book, ‘Fetishism in Fashion’ by Lidewij Edelkoort is beautifully wrapped. It’s a stunning book too, would you like to see me review it?
That’s it! Thanks for reading! Hope you liked my report. Do you already follow Bleaq on Instagram? And what do you think of the exhibition?
