Modefabriek Day 1

I always really enjoy visiting the Modefabriek, not only because it was the first fashion event I ever attended a few years ago, nor because it's the only place I get to sit front row, but because of the great energy at this huge fashion fair.
Every six months, the fair is organized at the Amsterdam Rai and plays host to hundreds of fashion labels such as Ten Feet, Vero Moda, Modstrom and Goosecraft. The main focus of the event is at buyers (thanks to the various halls featuring stands in different segments) but the press isn't left out thanks to lectures and fashion shows.
On Sunday miss L. and I attended the talk by fashion-guru David Shah - who talked about exciting innovations in the world of fashion - before checking in on the MAFB (Music and Fashion Battle) finale.
Four young (mostly self-taught) fashion designers from four regions of Amsterdam, battled it out on the catwalk to become overall winner and go home with some career-changing prizes.

La Femme Chic, Deveney, Nawal and Uzuri Couture were the finalists and my vote went to Uzuri Couture thanks to her modern interpretation of African print fabrics and overall great styling.
My absolute favourite outfit wasn't even part of the Battle but was by a third year student of the ROC, who combined an assymetric printed skirt with a simple open-back top - or perhaps it was a dress.
