I have an update.. I’ve found a video about the Green Fashion Competition. For those who don’t understand Dutch, here’s a quick recap.

It goes backstage with the winner, Elsien Gringhuis. She tells about how difficult it is to find sustainable fabrics. For instance: the lining unfortunately isn’t ‘green’. Furthermore one of the contestants tells how she uses silver in her designs. Silver? Yes you’ve read it correctly. The silver keeps the bacteria’s away so you don’t have to was it that often.

Just have a look at for the feeling of the designs. You’ll see a bit more of what they made and how elegant sustainable clothing can be!

elsien gringhuis wins tgfc at aifw

I’ve been biting my nails ’till I heard the news: the winner and runner-up of The Green Fashion Competition are Elsien Gringhuis and OAT. Love the flowy jumpsuit, really a musthave (and perfectly styled!). You can see the designs at the Nukuhiva store starting tomorrow.

Renowned fashion journalist and judge of the competition, Georgette Koning: “Elsien Gringhuis is modern and contemporary, she has great technical skills and paints a very feminine and beautiful picture. She has managed to create a signature style in a very short period of time”

vintage fashion finds

I’ve made it a habit to check the website of Dutch Glamour every once in a while. Not because I want to stay up to date, but because they have a Detox Store. It’s like eBay in small and only with clothes and accessories. And now they’ve got some pretty items..

Check out this jumpsuit. I’ve been looking for one for ages and I think I like this a lot. If there were a fitting room I’d check it right away! For € 40,- it’s yours.

dress is very romantic. Pare it up with brown leather boots or ballerina’s as you like. At € 15,- it’s a bargain.

Look at this party dress! Ain’t that a killer? It’s a silk Zara dress made for a cocktail party. And € 25,- don’t hurt. If only a where a size M…

To complete your look, you need shoes. And by that I mean some killer heels. For example: these jewels. They go very well with the second dress.

Hope you’ve found it inspiring! Check out the website every once in a while and be surprised!
