Coming to Amsterdam without going to the Red Light District is like going to Milan without passing by the Duomo, to Paris and not climbing the Eiffel Tower or going to New York and not seeing the skyscrappers. Aware of the power of attraction that this district has on a larger audience, the city of Amsterdam decided to loan for a period of time and to give the possibility for various talented Dutch designers to work and expose in the vitrines bordering les “Mademoiselles”.
Thanks to the motivation of the fashion recruitment and consultancy agency HTNK, 16 Dutch designers are now working, exposing and inspiring one another and get finaly the opportunity to place Dutch fashion on the International fashion map.
CODE Gallery is a kind of hive where all of them are sold.
Welcome into the world of Edwin Oudshoorn, inspired by everyday life -you - me, and gives a little bit of poesie.
G+N are cool, strong and very unique and that's how their label Gluejeans is too.
Mada Van Gaans gets inspired by nature, animals and myths that she translates with talent through a feminine line.
Welcome to the Red Light Fashion District..
