Different cultures 
bring different feelings!

After 2 intensive weeks of exams, 
I finally get the chance to reminisce on the past few fabulous and not to forget BUSY weeks that have passed.

I don’t know what the deal was, but October was so packed up with events that the month passed me by too fast… 

I think I might have even lost a few weave tracks in the process!

From hosting my veryfirst event at the Eau Lounge in Rotterdam, to heading out to 
the Hampshire Hotel in support of the breast cancer awareness event 
Pink Friday”, I can truly say that I have had a great time.

Of course every event has it’s own key features, which makes it into a big success. 
None of them are the same, that’s what makes them so enjoyable to attend.

Another event that I had the opportunity to attend was this year’s Salonè Della Moda
The 3rd and fierce edition of this event took place at the beautiful setting of 
the NHow hotel in Rotterdam.

Salonè Della Moda is an initiative by Stravagante PR, which offers it’s guests
 “A fashion experience surpassing every level” with (inter)national designers.

I attended the first day of this two-day event with friend and client stylist 
Ashlee Janelle Danso of Styled By YOU! Unfortunately, we had missed the first show 
due to traffic, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying our night out.

Scooped up at the entrance to be whisked away to the front row, 
where other bloggers and social influential individuals where sitting, 
was the perfect spot to get up all in the fashion craze that was going to happen.

We made it to the second show, which was the one that I had set all my hopes up for 
(not that I wasn’t interested in the others, but this one had triggered my curiosity ever since
 I had received the official press release!)


The ways this designer mixed and matched the magical Oriental with a little touch 
of Western “umph” had a girl WANTING to pack her bags and enjoy an nice vacation. 
(One day Hong Kong… One day!)

Rotterdam felt so far away for just a moment....

My favorite pieces from the collection!

Thank the fashion gods for a little break that we had in between shows. It was time to walk around, enjoy the breathtaking view of Rotterdam at night and to mingle. And as usual I ran into a lot of pretty and sassy individuals & friends, and could not let these moment pass us by….

After I had recomposed myself from all that was going on 
and found my seat again, it was time for the last show of the evening.

The Tailors runway show was a big success. 
I mean, who doesn’t love men in suites.

My panties were all in a bunch, when I found out that 1 of the models 
was actually Fab Morvan from former R&B sensation “Milli Vanilli” 
(I've just turned 25, but I do know my music history!)

From the fine fabric, to the tailor made suites and luxurious accessories
 (and not to forget the handsome men), 
THIS show was the perfect finishing touch of an amazing 1st day!
