Masters students from the Fashion Institute Arnhem showed their final creations at Amsterdam International Fashion Week. The show “Clash!” saw designs from young talents Lifu Hsiao, Sanne Schrijver, Julia Eichler and Claes Iversen shake up the catwalk.

Over the last one and a half years, the students worked on developing their own signature, creating high fashion at a speed and pace close to what an independent designer faces in real life. On Thursday 24 January, they presented their collections under the theme “Clash!”. The theme sums up how they felt about the course “An exciting clash with each other and within,” according to the participants.

Lifu Hsiao was born in Taiwan. After finishing his BA fashion degree at the Fu Jen University he came to Europe. His new collection presents a “1920’s lady look infused with inspiration from the streets of Amsterdam”. It resulted in clean shapes, small round shoulders and a low waist.

Sanne Schrijver designs women’s collections “It is important that clothes are wearable and nice on a woman’s body. I am always fascinated by men’s wear, it’s my inspiration for designing women’s collections.”

Julia Eichler’s collection is inspired by modern African art. “The way people in Africa use materials is the main inspiration for my collection. They recycle trash and make art out of it.”

Claes Iversen, born in Denmark, finished his BA at the Royal Academy in The Hague. His clothes are described as “twisted modern classics.” Iversen found his inspiration in “randomness, misshapes and garbage". They form the basis of the shapes in his new collection.

Golden Heel Award

Preceding the show the winner of the Sacha Golden Heel Award was announced. For this project, shoe shop Sacha and the Fashion Institute Arnhem teamed up and created a shoe design curriculum and competition. The winnner was Julia Eichler with the shoe “Anita”. She will have her shoe produced by Sacha and sold in selected Sacha shops in the Netherlands.
