Blurring the line between runway and performance art was Marga Weimans’s spring / summer 2013 show at Amsterdam fashion week (AIFW).

Bas Kosters: anti this, anti that

Bas Kosters is anti. He gives anti-parties, makes anti-fashion and gives anti-fashion shows. Hence the models weren’t tall, size 0, nor walking straight up on the catwalk. Instead the models were long, short, skinny and sizeable. The movement of the models was also more akin to dancing on the catwalk, as opposed to pounding down it. This was an Amsterdam fashion week showing that kicked…
