These Dutch designers are breaching the system

Who needs fashion week when you have a living room?


What do you do when you feel like you don’t fit into the conventional fashion system? Well, you simply disregard conventions and create your very own! That’s what these five designers must have thought when they organised SHOWROOM ROOMSHOW.

Presenting their brand new collections during a collective event next week—without any of the needless pretence too often related to fashion—this talented group invites you to the intimate confines of their communal living room.


Each presenting their distinct work, Barbara Langendijk, Camiel Fortgens, Lisa Konno, Karin Vlug and Schueller De Waal are putting on the sort of show that will have you reminiscing on teenage birthday parties. Yes, that includes a circle of chairs and (free) budget beer.

So come as you are, but don’t forget to RSVP as soon as you can! After all, these kids are much more popular and exciting than your average high school friend…
