Gold Fashion Event

We were invited to the first GOLD designer of the year, award show. We decided to have a peek and see the fashion shows of eight upcoming designers. The eventual winner of the evening (Swinda van Dijk) is promised to get a photoshoot for a lookbook and will be represented by GOLD Designers; an agency for upcoming designing talents.

The evening was hosted by the – in white and gold dressed – Chantel Bles. Four known names were judging the eight young talents during the evening: Sepehr Maghsoudi, Michael Barnaart van Bergen, Josh Veldhuizen and Mirte Engelhard.  In the above picture you’ll see various designers that gave a fashion show.

1. Swinda van Dijk – the absolute winner of the evening with a sophisticated and wearable collection.
2 & 3. Marit Visser – a designer who mostly designs bags.
4. Marco-Stefanus Pintus – showed a collection which was very diverse and colourful.
5. Kavita Bachasingh – beautiful light, feminine pieces with definite musthaves for the summer.
6. Mariska van Stiphout – this was real craftmanship! We definitely wanted to have the whole collection and we are excited to hear more about this designer.
