Hello lovely Spotted Stylers!

Welcome to my Fashion Week editor’s diary! Between 14th and 18th of January Mercedez- Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam was held at Westergasterrein and I had the pleasure to attend most of the shows and spot some Dutch models! Same as last year, I was happy to see many familiar faces of models, designers and bookers! I guess most of you were there too, enjoying the shows but in case you missed it and wonder what was it like, let me take you on a little walk through my fashion week editor’s notes from day 1!

Two Legged Creatures

Actually day 1 for our Spotted Style team was day 2 of Fashion week, so we were a bit fashionably late but better late then never, right? The first show that my spotted partner in fashion crime Thomas Nelissen and I watched was Two Legged Creatures! I found it very special, different and outstanding. It’s one of the shows that left a trace in my mind and days after Fashion Week I keep on going back to the videos and the pictures in my phone to look for an inspiration! Thanks to the designer for the front row seats, definitely the perfect view to spot the models who did an amazing job! Their walk was quite challenging because the shoes had big high soles and the girls had to step in and out of red colored liquid, leaving bloody traces on the snow white catwalk. I loved the show, the models, their pixelated make up tears and the collection! We spotted Donnate from Elite Amsterdam! Big applause for Two Legged Creatures! (more…)

Hi sweet Spotted Style readers,
Last week it was that time of year again: Amsterdam fashion week! I’ve been walking shows at Amsterdam fashion week many times now and I really enjoy doing it. The vibe is always good and there are always a lot of people I know so its never boring and doesn’t really feel like work! 
One of the shows I did last week was for Spijkers & Spijkers, last few AFW editions I walked for them as well, so I already knew what the day would look like. Spijkers & Spijkers is a Dutch design brand owned by the Truus and Riet Spijkers sisters. Its one of my favorite shows to walk, so I was thrilled that they booked me again this time.

Hello lovely Spotted Style readers! I walked the opening show of this season’s Amsterdam Fashion Week and with this post I want to show you what it’s like to walk a show.
 
When I arrived at 13:00, I couldn’t find the backstage location at first. I asked someone who worked on the ‘Westergasterrein’ and he told me to go right, but a couple of minutes later I found out that I actually had to go left. Oops, a little hectic start of the day, haha!
 
I entered the backstage location after a little bit of searching, and I saw that Marleen (Future Faces) and Silke (Future Faces) were already there. We didn’t have a lot of time to catch up because I had to start fitting my outfits for the show. The two costumes I had two wear were a golden dress with golden diamonds and matching shoes from Claes Iversen and a black suit (including a wig) from Frans Molenaar. When I walked out of the changing room and I saw myself in the mirror wearing the Claes Iversen dress, I was so amazed with how it looked! What a stunning dress.
 
After trying on the clothes, the make-up team wanted to test the make-up look on me, so it took a while before they figured out what the look would exactly be. After about 2 hours my face was completed and I could go rehearsing with all of the models. We were taught how to walk and how to show the clothes to the audience in different ways. This took about 1.5 hours. We walked the routine a couple of times and we also practiced the finale.

Models talk! Melody Vroom on How to change your lifestyle into a healthy one

Hi everyone,

I get a lot of questions from girls who want to change their lifestyle into a healthy one and don’t know how to begin with it. I thought, what better way to answer this question than with a blogpost? While reading this, remember that I’m not a nutritionist or an health expert, the tips I’m sharing with you are just things that work(ed) for me. Everyone has a different body, so everyone should do what feels right for them. These are just some tips to help everyone who wants to change their lifestyle and make it easier for them!

The first important change you have to make if you want to change your lifestyle is drinking a lot more water. I used to forget to drink water all the time and I mainly drank other things than water. When you start drinking enough water your skin gets better, you’re metabolism goes up and your overall health improves. Don’t drink more than 2.5 litres of water, doing this can damage your kidneys.

Another really important thing is to never skip breakfast. By eating a healthy, nutritious breakfast every morning you are full for longer and you won’t snack on bad food during the day because you’re less hungry.

Skipping snacks like candy, chips and other fatty or foods with a lot of added sugar and replacing them with (dried) fruits, vegetables, nuts, yoghurt etc. is the next step to healthy eating habits. All of these foods have great benefits. Fruits have a lot of fibres and vitamins just like vegetables, nuts have the healthy fats you need and yoghurt has protein. An example of a great snack is a mixture between carbs, fats and protein such as yoghurt (protein) with nuts (mainly fats) and fruits (carbs). This will keep you full until lunch/dinner and there are a lot of ways to keep healthy snacking fun so you grab a bag of candy much less likely.
