Studio IJm 1

Last week I went with friend and stylist Sophia van den Hoek to a photoshoot for a dutch magazine. The inspiration for this shoot came from a dutch painter Kees van Dongen and photos were taken by Miep Jukkema. I had never been to a photoshoot before and I just loved everything about this day.

The place where the shoot was taking place was at the truly inspirational IJm Studio in Amsterdam. I just could not stop getting my camera out to take pictures from all the details around us. In and around every corner there was something new to discover and I just loved the whole atmoshpere over there. Seeing the photos below you can imagine why!

Women, hope, fashion

These pretty photos are from Satara. A new dutch Fair Trade fashion label. Satara supports women in India. With the help from  young designers they make a feminin and comfortable collection. I love this idea and the clothes in nice pastels are great. I would wear almost everything, especially the ones with the bubbleprint!

The last few week I was enjoying all the amazing things we did on our 100 days trip through Asia. I always keep my red Moleskine with me for notes, as a diary and for little drawings.  Here one of the pages with the clothes I want to make when I come home at the end of this month.
