Last night the normally so industrial and dark location was transformed into a beautiful fairytale forrest, decorated with olive trees and soft pastel flowers. A secret garden, a spiritual place - where nymphs gather nearby springs and rivers to dance and sing. A vivid rendering of a garden in bloom provided the backdrop for Edwin Oudshoorns’ couture show. Creating a feeling of freedom and intimacy, accompanied by the ’pretty me’ vocals of Laura Jansen. After a week of fashion dreams, this was the high note to end on; spectacular.

Oudshoorn started his career in 2004 when he graduated ArtEZ summa cum laude. One year later his collections - wherefore his main inspiration were Russian women in St. Petersburg - was honoured with the Frans Molenaar Couture-prize. 

For this collection, named ’Fools Paradise’, Oudshoorn was inspired by an artificial paradise which comes with the struggle of striving for perfection. A romantic fairytale with chiffon-draped princess gowns, Swarovski embroideries and embellishments decorated fitted dresses in a colour palette of pure white, champagne and faded grey. Clocked mid-length dresses interspersed with long evening gowns, tight bustier constructions and subtle shoulder and neck details - all light and luxurious at the same time.

From fairytale pastels to tartan-printed looks inlaid with (again) Swarovski crystals. Printed skirts and shorts mixed with fitted capes, and dazzling hand-craftsmanship combined with silk and feathers. Once again Edwin Oudshoorn delivered a mesmerizing show: A floral fairytale containing thousands of sequins - all individually sewn by hand in his characteristic studio in the heart of Amsterdam.
