Vodafone Firsts Fashion LAB opens with Liselore Frowijn

Yesterday evening was the opening of Vodafone Firsts Fashion LAB, the talent and innovation programme by FashionWeek Nederland with Liselore Frowijn.

The Vodafone Firsts Fashion LAB will present several fashion shows by young designers from now until Monday 26 January. This will be the first time they will present their collections on the runway at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam. For those interested in seeing what these promising young designers have to offer, here are 'the ones to watch'.

Liselore Frowijn presented her new collection for the first time during the opening night of the Vodafone Firsts Fashion LAB programme in the Transformatorhuis. This collection, inspired by Oskar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet, will be presented in Paris in March. It includes geometric shapes and an interesting mix of sportswear and luxury. This collection was an excellent way to kick off the programme.

Liselore Frowijn: "My new collection is based on the underlying feeling that defines my generation - the need to return to what is pure in the world. In my contemporary translation of Oskar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet I offer my own interpretation of the costumes, with a nod to our fascination with robots and borrowing from the silhouettes and materials used in skiwear. This is also a hint of my signature style of pushing the boundaries between luxury clothing and sportswear."

Abundance of talent in the Transformatorhuis

What can you expect to see from these talented young designers?
INKNI will present an experimental menswear collection that pairs prints with natural materials to create a mix between modern design and traditional craftsmanship. The MAISON the FAUX collection centres on the theme of transparency and authenticity in fashion. What is real and what is fantasy?

The Schueller de Waal show will tickle the imagination. A decadent party in a surreal setting will showcase two separate realities. New to the runway is Barbara Langendijk. She will present a Japanese theme by way of a performance. The experimental menswear collection by Alla Kuzmyk portrays Ukrainian culture and society.

The 2015 Odyssey Collection by MAYN is inspired by the evolution of primates to the digital era in Stanley Kubrick's Space Odyssey 2001. The show will present an evolutionary transformation with a hint of technological dependence.

Mirte van Wijngaarden will present for the second time at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam. This year's collection was inspired by the powerful and confrontational Samurai.

Young designer Camiel Fortgens pushes the boundaries of redefining wearable and recognisable menswear in his collection.
