On Wednesday January 21st, from 6 till 10pm, we will be celebrating fashion and the development of digital art.

These two seemingly unrelated worlds come together in more ways than imaginable. This is shown by fashion designer Esther Dorhout Mees, by incorporating 3D artwork into her designs. Her inspiration and work process is shown in a series of mini- documentaries at the 5&33 Gallery at art’otel amsterdam, together with an interesting exposition on digital art by the Lumen Prize Exhibition on the 6th day of Zalando presents 10 Days Downtown.

Adults: Free RSVP: downtown@fashionweek.nl

About the designer:

The label Dorhout Mees was founded in 2010 by the Dutch designer Esther Louise Dorhout Mees. After her studies at ArtEZ Academy of Arts in Arnhem and many years of working as a designer for established labels, such as Bruuns Bazaar and Tommy Hilfiger, it was time to start her own label.

Dorhout Mees is distinctive in its elegant style. It is feminine and conceptual, but wearability is always an important element. Organic forms contrasted sharp next to constructual forms. The basis of all collections are prints, silk, wool and delicate knits. This combined with the use of wearable unconventional materials.

Fasinaction of the constant connection between body and material, covering and uncovering of the female body is always the starting point. Contradictions in structures, silhouette and textures are the essence of the collections.
