INSTALLATION 'REVERSED NUDITY' BY CONNY GROENEWEGEN AT PITTI FILATI

© Jan Willem Kaldenbach

Pitti Immagine and The Dutch Fashion Foundation are proud to present Conny Groenewegen, winner of the Mercedes-Benz Dutch Fashion Award 2011 and winner of the International Incubator Award, as a special guest to Pitti Filati 2012. This joining of forces adds to the already existing cooperation between Pitti and The Dutch Fashion Foundation regarding the Dutch Touch presence at Pitti Uomo and Pitti W. DHL Netherlands has kindly facilitated the transportation of the installation.

The work exhibited
The work exhibited, “Reversed Nudity” ’is the continuation of Conny’s interest in the combination of leather and hand knit. The knitted ribs give a repetitive, rigid and more physical structure to the skin. The work is a durable interior/fashion hybrid with a double sided use and many possibilities. For example the scale invites you to wrap yourself in in front of the fireplace while sleeves and hoody still give you the freedom to move, read and interact. And in a majestic way you can wear the piece and imagine yourself a character from long told myths. The used anyline leather is a type of leather in which high quality hides have been treated. This produces a delicate, soft, supple leather that will gain character through time.

The piece was made in 2010 and has been exhibited during 2011 at different locations in the Netherlands in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Schiedam and The Hague.
In addition to this sculptural piece two white leather/hand knit coats (see attached images) are exhibited which are made using the same technique. www.connygroenewegen.com

ANNOUNCEMENT DUTCH FASHION AWARDS 2011

Dutch Fashion Foundation prepares for the first lustrum of the Dutch Fashion Awards. In November 2011 the fifth edition of this yearly event will be presented for the Dutch fashion industry in The Hague.

On the evening of Friday November 4th 2011, the Dutch Fashion Awards will be held in the Grote Kerk, ‘big church’, in Holland’s political capital The Hague. The lustrum edition of the Dutch Fashion Awards offers a great moment of reflection for the organization of the Dutch Fashion Foundation. Following the economic zeitgeist, the foundation and the Dutch Fashion Awards have experienced a process of retrenchment. On the threshold of this first lustrum, the participating designers as well as all the sponsors, creative partners and the Dutch Fashion Foundation can consider themselves winners.

The Dutch Fashion Awards rewards Dutch fashion labels that have great potential to make a contribution to the international fashion market. The ‘Academy of Dutch Fashion Design’, a number of independent fashion professionals, nominated only those emerging labels ready to make such a move. “Mercedes-Benz, a loyal partner for five years, engages the first lustrum for the presentation of the Concept A-Class to the Dutch fashion industry.” The nominees for the 2011 edition will be announced mid-September.

On Thursday July 14th womenswear label Roya Hesam and menswear label Z E M presented their Spring/Summer 2012 collections Amsterdam International Fashion Week. As part of the Fashion Week LAB, a stage for young and ambitious fashion designers, Roya Hesam presents her 'Facing Skills' collection and Samira Algoe presents her 'Daylight' collection.

Roya Hesam - Hesam graduated in 2010 from Fashion & Design at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. She showed her graduation collection at Fashion Transit 2010. As well Hesam showed her graduation collection during Graduate Fashion Week London and is chosen, as one of the nominees, as international winner. Last January Hesam presented her first independent collection ‘Te Mana O Te Moana’ (Spirit of the Ocean) as part of the Fashion Week LAB.

Hesam’s design stands for beauty. Designing from the vulnerability from women she lets on the contrary her designs emit strength. The design is vulnerable and at the same time strong and fierce. Her work is characterised by the use of transparent fabrics in combination with covering fabrics, through this layering Hesam tries to bring emotion and life to the clothes. Besides Hesam plays with moulding to be surprised by the fabric. www.royahesam.com

Z E M - Samira Algoe graduated from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute in 2010. Shortly after graduating she established the label Z E M to shape her ideas about menswear. The label focuses on rediscovering the archetype of menswear in a modern perspective: old becomes new. By a gentle and native approach of this archetype Algoe studies the identity of men. With Z E M she tries to discover the vulnerable side of men by pushing the boundaries of menswear. Algoe’s pure dedication to graphic morphology is a source of inspiration for shape, colour and materials. Minimalism, an eye for detail and ensuring high quality is essential. Z E M is wearable clothing for the confident, open-minded men who are comfortable in his own body.

This is the second catwalk presentation of Z E M during the Amsterdam International Fashion Week. Before, Z E M was part of Fashion Week LAB and there Algoe presented her first Autumn/Winter 2011/12 collection in January of this year. The Spring/Summer 2012 ‘DAYLIGHT’ collection is preliminary on the AIFW presented from 5 until 9 July during a showroom presentation at Berlin Fashion Week. www.zem-men.com

AMSTERDAM INTERNATIONAL FASHION WEEK

Lotte van Keulen, ZEM by Samira Algoe and Roya Hesam

This Amsterdam International Fashion Week Dutch Fashion Foundation supported with the PR-unit So Dutch Fashion the labels Lotte van Keulen, Roya Hesam and Samira Algoe. These three designers, all graduated from AMFI in 2010, presented their first collections as independent designers.

Lotte van Keulen - Constant factors in Van Keulen’s designs are the juxtaposition between fluid draping and hard-edged, structured forms and the combination of opposites like masculine/feminine, loose/tight and light/shadow. Fascinated by the fashion ‘system’ of changing trends and tendencies Van Keulen likes to combine her interest in fashion with philosophy and sociology. For more information please click on the press release below or visit www.lottevankeulen.com

Roya Hesam - Hesam’s design stands for beauty. Designing from the vulnerability from women she lets on the contrary her designs emit strength. Hesam’s woman is vulnerable and at the same time strong and fierce. Her work is characterised by the use of transparent fabrics in combination with covering fabrics, through this layering Hesam tries to bring emotion and life to the clothes. Besides Hesam plays with moulding to learn new techniques en be surprised by the fabric. For more information please click on the press release below or visit www.royahesam.com

ZEM by Samira Algoe - A fresh interpretation of the already existing, applied differently in combination with the use of geometric shapes is characteristic for Algoe’s work. This collection is brought in soft tones. Colours which are not as real colours, but shadows that will remember you of winter cold, snow, rain, breeze and bright sunlight. Algoe uses ordinary and unconventional materials, with these materials she likes to make an intonation of recognisability with a touch of new. “I enjoy to surprise, create an impulse of new”.
