Iris van Herpen Exhibition

Some time ago I travelled all the way to the other side of the Netherlands (from Rotterdam to Groningen) to see the exhibition about Iris van Herpen, a dutch fashion designer I really admire, at the Groninger Museum. It was a really beautiful exhibition. It was amazing to see her dazzling pieces in real life. The only down point was that my camera after 10 minutes suddenly had no battery life anymore. But that became a good excuse to buy the beautiful book that was specially made for the exhibition. If you are in the opportunity to go to this exhibition, go! It's such a beautiful exhibition you won't regret it. More information about the exhibition check the site of the Groninger Museum. If you want to see more about this amazing fashion designer check the site of Iris van Herpen

Opening Secret Gardens at CBK

Yesterday I had a very nice opening of the exhibition and shop with the theme "de geheime tuin" (translates into "secret garden") which also had my collection "leaves Impression". This all happened at the CBK in Rotterdam. It was a great opening with lot's of people, lot's of flowers from the charming flower-girls walking around and lot's and lot's of talent that was displayed! Got in touch with some very interesting people! Some of them where Renske VersluijsBarbara SmitMadeleen Bloemendaal, J├Ârgen Smit, Susanne Vuyk and Niels van Hout , they are all worth checking out!  I went home not only very inspired and happy but also with a cute little gift envelope containing some sunflower-seeds.

They exist for 30 years and celebrate this by having a wonderful exhibition called "de Geheime Tuin" which translates into "Secret Gardens". The very Exciting thing is that I will be featuring most of my "leaves Impression" Collection in their new and improved shop!
