Amsterdam Denim Days – Mecca for denim lovers


Denim is tradition and innovation, heritage and uncompromising street style. What’s not to love? Is indigo your favourite colour too? Make sure you make it to the capital on 7-10 May!

Amsterdam Denim Days brings together the national and international denim community in the city with the highest concentration of denim brands. The House of Denim initiative in collaboration with Modefabriek (Blueprint), HTNK Fashion recruitment & consultancy and the American Kingpins Show was very enthusiastically received by the whole industry. The result is highly diverse content and an interesting show in the Zuiveringshal venue on the grounds of the Westergasfabriek, as well as in various denim hotspots downtown, for all denim freaks, from makers to fans.

Menswear Trends SS14 – part II

Menswear Trends

By Igor Guinau

Most men don’t care about fashion trends. Or maybe they don’t dare to wear them. There seems to be a persistent taboo surrounding cutting-edge fashion statements for men. Because, heaven forbid, one might come across as too feminine. Fortunately, a new generation of designers and aficionados is fed up with those boring clichés and has started experimenting with the once so strict boundaries between the feminine and masculine wardrobe. read more

Inspiring, innovative and relaxed. The responses to the most recent edition of Modefabriek – 26 & 27 January at the Amsterdam RAI – have been unanimously positive. But even more than the updated platform segmentation, sleek design and extra attention to the food and forecasting experience, ‘soft values’ like recaptured solidarity, mutual appreciation and passion for the field were praised with superlatives. The latter is clear from the tremendous turnout alone, including a record number of international visitors. read more

On Monday, 27 January, the Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Lilianne Ploumen attended Modefabriek on the invitation of the MINT sustainability platform. In the open press room in the middle of Hall 1, she spoke without equivocation about her mission to use government resources to improve the entire fashion chain for the entire sector. Her message: international socially responsible business practices pay off. “The Netherlands is at the forefront with a platform like MINT,” she explained and proclaimed that “sustainable entrepreneurship is an investment, but the fashion sector is pre-eminently innovative and creative.” After her speech, Minister Ploumen, followed by a camera crew from NOS, talked to various business professionals on hand about their experiences, bottlenecks and how the government can help strengthen their earning capacity.
