This week on Design.nl some passionate outbursts accompanied the release of Experimental Jetset's new graphic identity for the Whitney Museum of American Art. We look in at some of the more colourful local and American reactions. We also talk to Floris Wubben who impressed many international curators at the recent DMY festival in Berlin. We visit two more graduate fashion shows and find menswear has really become the new womenswear for fashion design students. Also this week we speak with Pauline van Dongen about her latest collaboration named Wearable Solar, we chat with Jon Stam during Design Miami/ Basel and visit galerie kreo in Paris where Wieki Somers presents her latest project: mitate. Finally we can reveal that Tord Boontje will be leaving the RCA as a professor and hear that Organisation in Design will be the artistic director for this year's Klokgebouw at DDW. And as if that wasn't enough, this week we have three gorgeous new publications to offer our readers in a book giveaway!

More on student fashion shows 2013

Two more graduate fashion shows come you way this week including the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and School of the Arts Utrecht and we’re left wondering, why is there no official graduate fashion week?
