SLEEK modern style and pushing the boundaries, the Amsterdam International Fashion week showed that Dutch fashion is on the pulse as always.

The Dutch are known for being ahead in their technology, and futuristic themes shone throughout the fashion shows, with jutting edges, large shoulders, white make-up and metallic, shiny textures.

Pictures also demonstrate the high impact of mixing neutrals.

If you could summarise such a large variety of fashion style, it would be that the fashion is mostly understated, but always elegant.
