RAW MATERIALS BY:JUDITH VAN VLIET Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam

Designer Judith van Vliet will present her new collection ‘Raw Materials’ in the MBFWA Dynamic Store. It won’t be just a catwalk presentation, but it will be a full on experience, where a story is being told with her conceptual designs and ambiance. This experience will be completed with a live act by singer Marle Thomson.

With the collection ‘Raw Materials’, van Vliet wants to make people more aware of all the effort that it takes to develop and produce materials, such as fabric.
People are not aware of this matter and would rather buy cheap and easy clothes than something of good quality and sustainable.

On the 2nd of July you can step into a world of full transparency and learn more about the processes that take place in the textile industry.

When the first models are doing hair and make up, designer Judith van Vliet and her assistants are doing the fittings and make some modifications on her creations so they fit exactly on the models who wear them.
