Modepalast is an (shopping) exhibition for accessoires, jewelry & fashion taking place once a year at Museumsquartier, Vienna. Labels from Berlin, London, eastern Europe and Switzerland use this event for networking and presentation. This year there`ll be some special space in the foyer for guest-designers from the Netherlands. In the MQ. you´ll find different halls for Ready-to-wear, Urban Style & Newcomers. Look out for parties and side-events! During next week, I´ll show some young designers, you`ll find over there.
Starting today with Conny Groenewegen from the Netherlands. Her Fall/Winter Collection 2009 ´Eclipse` seems to me as a visualization of amazing nightshades. Exploiting the theme`s full potential, she shows a dramatic mise-en-scène and great sense for atmosphere, showing beautiful coloured birds of paradise casting shadows on stage.
