I met Frank at AIFW

Saturday was one busy day for me! I got up at 9 and decided whether I'd actually go to Amsterdam to see only one show at Fashion Week. My tweet got a few reactions that were telling me to hurry my ass over to Amsterdam. I didn't regret it one bit. The only sad part of the whole day was that I had to eat a pizza all by myself before leaving back to Belgium. Anyways, I arrived in Amsterdam at about one o'clock, did a quick tour around the shops - Monki was my goal - and hurried back to the central station to catch the bus to Westergasfabriek a.k.a. the place to be! After a billion of raindrops that had fallen on my head and clothes and shoes and ... do you get the picture? - I finally arrived where I needed to be. The show I was attending was quite a surprise for everyone... I sat front row with a goodie bag waiting there for me ^^ The show started and halfway through, I was thinking: 'Huh, this collection is so wearable and not the FW style I expected? There's something up!' Well, there actually was. The inexpensive brand Zeeman pulled a stunt on all of us. Its vision is quite clear: 'Looking good doesn't have to be expensive'. Some of the pieces weren't really my thing, but I loved the big dresses! Also loved the popping colors in the accessories the models were sporting! It was a quick show, but I don't regret it a bit. I hope I can attend AIFW again next time.

Big thanks to COZ Related Marketing for inviting me!

En dit is weer een van die momenten waarop ik denk: Man, I love fashion! Everything is possible, niets moet! Wat een heerlijke gedachte! Na dit zal Zeeman nooit meer dezelfde zijn (oké misschien wel), maar dit is gewoon epic! Echt waar, een historisch moment! Wat fijn voor je om er bij te geweest zijn!
