Open dag - Rietveld Academie - Amsterdam

- Open day - Rietveld Academy -

Yesterday, I went to the Open Day of the Rietveld Academy. Lots of things were going on, on every department of the building. There was even a rockband playing in a very small room in a different building. The Rietveld Academy is quite a prestigious Art School; many people think it's the best of the country, other people think it's not a good art school at all because of the way of teaching.
Anyhow, I've seen a lot of interesting people, and I think 60% of all the students are not Dutch. Haha.

- Button's and scetches -

- Architecture -

Eva & Eefje
These two cutiepies are fashion students. Eva (curly hair girl) studies at Rietveld and Eefje (short it!) studies in Arnhem at ArtEZ, another prestigious art school. The same school were Viktor & Rolf graduated in 1992. Click on the pictures for a better view.

- How cute. -

- I should've asked another picture of Eefje's outfit under her beautiful coat...I think it was a one-whole-white-suit -

- One of many fashion creations -

JD, for today, you are my hero. It's so refreshing to see new ideas, especially that last shot. Loved the awesome paper building, too. kiss, kiss

Heb Eva ook gezien en dat kledingstuk was één van mijn favoriete objecten/kunstwerken van gisteren!

Hoe laat was jij er eigenlijk? Wij ongeveer van 5 tot 6.

Het lijkt van binnen echt enorm veel op ArtEZ, dus we voelden ons er direct thuis ;)

Oh, trouwens, je hebt Viktor met een 'c'. Foeifoei.

@ Diane: that paper building was one of the best creations that day. :)

@ Renée, ik was om 17:30 uur weggegaan...! Ik heb je net gemist!!
Maar rond 17:00'en ging ik naar een ander gebouw voor een optreden van een 'spreker' en een rockbandje. Wel interessant. :) Enne, heb de C veranderd in een K...thanks!

@ Dominica: thank you, thank you, thank you.
