MOAM AMSTERDAM: UNDRESSING DUTCH FASHION’S HISTORY
‘An ambitious project curated by Martijn Nekoui, concludes his graduation exam from the branding department at Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). The gallery space and the show itself evaporated the invisible international style we often look for, which is sometimes hard to find. Congratulations Martijn for undressing Dutch fashion history!’

Martijn’s graduation project turned out into a fabulous fashion-exhibition in which he presents the work of 12 icons of Dutch fashion-history combined and re-interpreted by contemporary talents. He showed such a daring but idealistic enthusiasm in which we easily could recognize our own first steps into the fabulous fashion-world! So we were really pleased Martijn asked us to join the exhibition in collaboration with Nelleke Strijkers (SPRMRKT). (in this photo Nelleke and Puck)
The brilliant catwalk performance of Linda Spierings in our 1984 fashion-show was sublimated by Nelleke into a beautiful video called “Satisfaction“. (Nelleke also was a participating mannequin in our ’84 show).
