CIMG0038

Amber is the name of the fourth edition of the Arnhem Mode Biennale. It must be one of the biggest fashion-events, and it's held in Holland. In a huge enormous building are over 30 installations, visions of fashionlabels such as Prada, Anne-Sofie Back, Rodarte, Thom Browne, threeASFOUR, Rad Harouani, Juun.J, Klavers van Engelen, Damir Doma – look for the whole list and programme at www.arnhemmodebiennale.nl Below you see my favorite work, it's made by A.F. Vandevorst. The installation shows a girl sleeping in a hospital bed in her A.F.Vandevorst dress. The girl as well as the matress and pillow are made out of candlewax. Once lit, what starts as a perfect image will slowly melt and perisch during the biennale.
