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.
On the young designer platform Next, Peter Leferink, senior lecturer at the AMFI fashion institute by day, presented his own women’s label PCL under the guise of ‘now or never’. This experienced designer has deliberately opted for small-scale, luxury and local. He shared his experience at Modefabriek on his Facebook page: “Very interesting reactions to my work (…), which show time and again that what moves me also moves others, like an embrace.” And on Day 2: “Until yesterday, it did not seem possible to be energised by participating in a trade show.” FoA (First of August) of Amsterdam also captured admiration for its utterly wearable minimalistic design in genuine premium quality. Every design has its own QR code that refers to a web page with detailed information on all the unique properties of the materials and production process. Designer Karlijn Boersma also organises lectures on sociology and fashion at the FoA Academy. read more
The new, contemporary and traditional Food Market was also a resounding success. Nor did visitors shy away from the more experimental food experience in the successful Retail Future Home project. The spacious connecting hall was converted into an oasis of inspiration. Initiator Judith ter Haar concluded the intensive experiment with a sense of victory. “Visitors were truly open to inspiration en masse. ‘Oh, such tranquility!’ and ‘I’m covered in goose bumps’ were among the responses. And I mean everyone had this kind of response. Culture and commerce came together perfectly.”
