ConfScoop – Special Sunday Edition on AFW

It is the end of the weekend and this ConfSCOOP is coming later since this and next weekend the news will be on the Amsterdam Fashion Week events, which started with the Fashion Weekend – Downtown.

In spite of the cold – very cold – winter breeze, fashionistas dressed up and covered their best looks with warm and furry coats to walk the busy streets and enjoy the promotions, goodies and special programs that were lined up for them.

The event started with an opening party in AIR Friday night and maybe because of that the streets were not as crowded the following day. Similarly to the VFNO in September, shops had drinks, fruits, cupcakes, chocolates and other offers to make shoppers feel… fashion cared! It worked! The cupcakes at FRENCH CONNECTION look incredibly delicious and the Coconut Water and candy at THE PEOPLE OF THE LABYRINTHS kept us fueled for all the walking around.

At AZZURRO you could receive advice on hair trends and make up and in a different scope; at FRENCH CONNECTION stylists giving you tips and new designers showing their work. But that was not all. The GRAZIA NL took this opportunity to offer some selected dutch bloggers a Masterclass on blogging. Definitely one not to miss, unless like me you do not speak Dutch. My friend and blogger at SheelaghMairi.nl was one of the lucky fashion-b to be picked and made quite the impression [check her blog to know more].

I have to say that I hoped the streets would be crowded and the stores packed, that you would have to beg for the nice offers. That was not the case. In the end we all know that the highlights of a fashion week are the shows and luckily your very own Confashionista is in the rsvp list of some shows. Keep your eyes opened for the posts on the shows!
