PRELUDE - AUTUMN/WINTER 2008-2009 SALON -
On Tuesday January 22nd 2008 the Dutch Fashion Foundation and Mercedes-Benz proudly presented the fourth edition of the exclusive fashion salon ‘Prelude’ with the presentations of the new Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 collections of Sjaak Hullekes, Sebastic, Mada van Gaans, Corné Gabriëls and Conny Groenewegen, hosted under the hospitality of NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam.
Mercedes-Benz supports the Dutch Fashion Foundation in her mission to create awareness and international appreciation for the Dutch fashion industry. With their collaboration the allure, quality and pioneering values of both brands meet. Both are very excited about the Prelude platform and proud of the success it has gained for the participating designers. For emerging talents Sjaak Hullekes and Sebastic it was the first time to show during this fashion platform event. Mada van Gaans presented for the fourth time, Corné Gabriëls for the third time and Conny Groenewegen for the second time after her debut during the last edition of the Prelude salon in July. With the continuation of the Prelude salons Mercedes-Benz supports the Dutch fashion world by accentuating the clear values of avantgarde fashion within the Netherlands.
