MAJOR Dutch Fashion Week news! Ever since the first Fashion Week, the location has been Amsterdam. A logical choice.. after all, Amsterdam is thé Dutch fashion capital. But chance is in the air!
The organisation of the Fashion Week and the city of Amsterdam are in a disagreement about the providing of grants. Well, the city of Amsterdam isn’t providing any and that puts the organisation in a difficult position because they depend on those grants.
Bart Maussen (PR Fashion Week) revelead that the organisation is talking to two other cities about the possibilty to move the Fashion Week there. And Rotterdam is one of them! (For every Rotterdam-loving-fashionista this is the best news this year!) “The choice would be a logical one, since Rotterdam has one of the best Academies of the country” Maussen explains. The city of Rotterdam says in a statement that it is willing to provide the neccessary grants and permits and will help find the perfect locations. This all sounds very promising!
