Some glitz and glamor from Amsterdam International Fashion Week, which completed last night. This dramatic dress is from the Jantaminiau SS 2010 Couture collection entitled Duality, and I think it is quite a standout. Here I illustrated this elaborate creation with simple hair as I get easily overwhelmed. :)
Jantaminiau is a collection designed by the Netherlands born designer Jan Taminiau, who plays with form and fabric to create meticulously constructed pieces. In this collection, he experimented with giant silk rosettes and structured beaded embroidered shells, to present a range of ultra short, rich pieces. Read about and see more of this collection (which was also shown in Paris on January 25th) here.
AIFW had quite a few beautiful shows, and I am hoping to illustrate a few more soon. I love following international shows because I get to discover many of those talented designers for the first time.
