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.

Bless the bad timing of the people at Amsterdam Fashion Week! Completely stressed from missing the bus, the bridge being open while on the bus (twice!) and running on heels, I got to the Westergasfabriek twenty minutes late. Turns out: I was perfectly on time for the show by Dorhout Mees. And what a nice way to relax it was.

Esther Louise Dorhout Mees presented a small womenswear collection named ‘Become’. Inspired by the search for genuineness and nature, the clothes were quite ethereal. Mostly because of the fabrics: very sheer, shimmering, a bit metallic at times. The shoulders were quite strong, while the hotpants and dresses showed the feminine side. It was very well balanced. The hair and make-up was also nicely done (which can’t be said about every me on this). Very natural and pretty, with the hair looking a bit frayed and in an updo. Again, the contrasts.

I thought about how I could sum up this collection so that everybody will get it. Let’s say that if Tinkerbell would have a role in Game of Thrones, she would wear this collection. Amazing, in other words. But you be the judge!
