MATTIJS En Vogue
Florence Kane from VOGUE magazine came to Amsterdam to visit RedLight Fashion Amsterdam. This initiative is part of HTNK, a fashion recruitment and consultancy company founded by Mariette Hoitink. Redlight Fashon gives starting designers enough space to work and live in the famous Redlight district area. A meeting with Mattijs in his temporary workspace was succesfull; Kane liked Mattijs' all white fall collection with his signature pleats.
Currently Mattijs's spring/summer collection 2010 "Florish Odalisk" is well received by the fashion media. January the 27th, Mattijs will open the Amsterdam International Fashion Week AIFW, toghether with Jan Taminau.
