Fur Free Fashion @ Hortus Botanicus – AIFW

For me, Amsterdam International Fashion Week started off with volunteering at the event in Hortus Botanicus organized by Fur Free, an organization that is against the fur industry. Just got back, and have to admit it was a fantastic evening! The crowds were nice, the drinks were good, the presentations were perfect and the tours were done really well. We well succeeded tonight and I guess everyone’s really proud of what we have accomplished. Designers who designed pieces for the exhibition were Bas Kosters, And Beyond, Lew by Leemans and Wicker, Antoine Peeters and Hester Vlamings.

There was even a group of pro-fur protestants! How hilarious! That just lets us know how big the anti-fur movement has already become. Furthermore lots of press (tv and photography), let’s say I’m very curious about those results :)

Now off to bed, to get up early tomorrow for work, and my second day of AIFW directly after that. With a friend I’m going to Non by Kim first, and after that we’ll be visiting Collectie Arnhem.

Update: The Fur Free exhibition is open for public now, till January 29 at Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam (near Waterlooplein)!
