Dutch Heritage Exhibition
On the impressive opening night the rich history of Dutch fashion and the fashion industry is shown. Dutch Heritage, the exhibition shows unique creations of Dutch designers since 1960, some of which are too fragile and delicate to show on the catwalk.
For this reason, Fashion Week has chosen for an exhibition with works by Iris van Herpen, Fong Leng, Lola Pagola, Jan Jansen, Max Heymans, Mart Visser, Le Cri Neerlandais, Individuals and Collection Arnhem.
From 5 p.m. you can admire the inspiring workmanship and unique visions in the Transformatorhuis.
