Beside the new collection of Jennifer Delano, “Then, Now, Soon” , two more collections will be showed during the show at the Amsterdam International Fashion Week 2009. The audience at the Beurs van Berlage will be spoiled with the new collections of Eleonore de Ruuk and Melanie Brown.
Eleonore de Ruuk begun her own fashion label under her own name “Eleonore de Ruuk” in 2006. Her style can described best as a mix of streetwear and highfashion. Her trademark are hoods, which she combines in original ways, such as a hood combined with a tie or backpack, but also used in jumpsuits and dresses. Her hoods, graphical shapes and prints and the use of sportive fabrics contribute to the streetfeeling, while on the other hand her subtle use of more elegant fabrics and shapes contributes to a delicate style. All these elements combined give her work a recognisable style. Eleonore de Ruuk won the “Ispo Brandnew Style Award” 2008 for her timeless and highly individualistic style.

Melanie Brown begun her own fashion label in 2008 under the name Br.wn Clothes. Br. wn Clothes is all about femininity in a pure and realistic sense. The clothes have a sexy elegance with a little twist somewhere; a playfulness, things that shouldnot fit somehow do. Br.wn Clothes are intended for woman who cherish clothes for their quality of cut, material and detail. They are intended for woman who want something a little bit different, woman who dare. The clothes, like the individual who chooses to wear them, have a strong indentity.
