About the author
Sabrina (who is old as fuck) has more energy than a Duracell bunny, and uses it to dance in the newest clubs, eat too much junk food, play all the videogames, examine apps and shop - even though she has more than enough clothes. Sorry Earth.

From the 15th to the 30th of January you will be able to see well-known designers, but also some fresh new talent. No, I’m not talking about the Amsterdam International Fashion Week (it does however coincide with this), this is about winterSALON/. A dialogue between art, photography, illustrations and fashion. An initiative by SALON/, who want to spark a discussion about fashion and its ability to cross ‘design’ borders, and that’s exactly what makes this so interesting.

Not just anybody has the ability to make people see the similarities between art and fashion but SALON/ does, with over thirty contributors showing their work this time (They’re quite the ‘collection’ all by themselves). This event will take place at six beautiful, hand picked locations that contrast with the art. (Think Murakami in Versailles!) Don’t be fooled by the hideous flyer; it’s definitely worth your time.


Exhibited work includes more than 30 contributors, from Claes Iversen to NON by Kim. For all the participants check out their website.
Date: 15th-30th of January.
Locations: Huize Frankendael, Amsterdams Historisch Museum, Droog, Museum van Loon, De Waag, Museum Willet Holthuysen.
Tickets: €10,- passé-partout for access throughout the two weeks. Tickets can be bought on the website or at Droog.

Here is a list of presentations. While some are invitation only, the six locations will be open for public everyday –except for the days that they’re normally closed-:
