What? What do you mean? Overdose.am is not the only going out guide in town? Who knew? OK, there are lots of ways to find the best spots, gigs, bars, clubs, museums, shops, etc in Amsterdam but July saw the launch of a stylish new start-up which brings something different to the mix. So maybe there’s room for just one more … (..more)

Last Friday I was invited to a somewhat secretive and peculiar office party. Normally, you end up at an opening or launch on a random Friday evening after work. The drinks are free, the music is a tad too loud (yet quite good!) and the people are… ‘interesting’. (..more)

Amsterdam Fashion Week: Dennis Diem, killer heels and corsets

Can I just start by saying that I freaking love Dennis Diem’s work? I went to see his show at Amsterdam Fashion week in 2012 as well and absolutely loved his collection. So obviously my expectations were high this year, and I was very happy to see them fulfilled. His collection is inspired by opium and the movement of smoke. If only I had a little more money I’d buy one of his pieces to flaunt at a party such as Ontrouw. (..more)

Normally I write about music but for Amsterdam Fashion Week I’m more than happy to make an exception. The models and especially the audience are a perfect excuse to let my voyeuristic side out.

My second Amsterdam Fashion Week Show was Stjerren Oan It Firmamint from Winde Rienstra. Winde has always been one of my favourite designers because she lifts clothes up to another level where she almost transforms them into architecture. I left the show with mixed feelings however.
