MF Talks

MF TALKS, Modefabriek’s seminar programme, has been expanded again and is now even more complete. Here are a couple of important names up front:

Alexandra Onderwater, Editor-in-Chief of Toile magazine, a brand new title from FRAME publishers, discusses the newest innovations in fashion and retail, such as the true potential for a 3D printed dress, how Instagram is replacing the traditional lookbook, and what fashion brands can learn from Uber. Get the insider perspective!

Max Dekker, retail expert, gives a lecture on ‘True Self Branding’ and how you can achieve greater focus in your identity as a brand and company when you start out from your own passion. Translate this personal mix of fascinations into a unique experience for the consumer and know how this develops and why.

David Shah, trend forecaster and magazine publisher, gives you his view on the future for active wear in mainstream fashion, why Nike is the new Prada and, last but not least, why men are the new pin-ups in fashion!

In addition, David Shah will be hosting one of the master classes during the SUMMER SCHOOL, a new initiative aimed at allowing new graduates and other starters in the profession to share in all of the knowledge and expertise that Modefabriek brings together each season.


Summer says Showtime!


This edition of Modefabriek we celebrate that fashion is always on the move and therefore we will host a Fashion show in a new and vibrant way. Inspired by the busy crossings in cities around the globe, Modefabriek will present its Fashion show in a new dimension that reflects this urban city life feeling and shows the latest trends. The Fashion show has multiple timeslots a day and will be styled by Pascal-Joel Weber and curated by Carlo Wijnands.


The Dutch // Discover their DNA

The Dutch

In the centre of District C, a number of premium menswear innovators come together to uncover the style DNA of the Dutch man in an inspiring way, and to translate it to the present. THE DUTCH is a project on ‘new tailoring’ compiled and created by Spike Spijker, that among other things shows how Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh from the collective Art Comes First translate their love for tradition into contemporary menswear on the spot.
