On the Hunt: Salonè della Moda
Camilla Salgaard, Marco Stefano Pintus, Pearl Dronkers and Mountain Yam. These are the names of four young talented, starting fashion designers who showed their collections during the first night of Salonè della Moda. A platform where international starting fashion designers get the opportunity to show their collections. I was invited to attend the shows, to get to know the designers and to experience the city Rotterdam.

An exhibition dedicated to the work of Jean Paul Gaultier. Kunsthal Rotterdam presents the exhibition, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From The Sidewalk To The Catwalk, featured over 140 couture and ready-to-wear pieces from throughout the designer’s extensive career most of which come from his personal collection. Next to Salonè della Moda, I was excited about this exhibition. His subversive and extravagant designs, impeccable tailoring, the breton stipes and body corsets. After seeing his documentary I was curious to see his creative development over the years. The exhibition continues until May 12 2013, so if you around Rotterdam make some time. It’s worth it!
