” …a success like last year?”

Fashion Week July 2014 …just a few days left and we’ll be enjoying great street style, fashion shows, Dutch cellebs and meet lots of creative people in the fashion business. Last year the July edition of Fashion Week was a succes in my opinion; great vibes, excellent shows (on schedule), nice street style and an overall good organised event. Of course the weather is a very important factor, because last edition in January it rained a lot which kinda kills the whole glamour..

…..July editions are therefore perfect! Perfect temperature and beautiful sunsets. It already starts outside of the main entrance where perfectly styled fashionista’s and chic gentlemen show the latest designs and trends.

I really like her style and also this Continue reading “MBFW Street style: Ombre print skirt, Carolien Spoor”
