Last night I’ve visited the opening of the collection of Rachid Assoui at the shop of Margreeth Olsthoorn at Rotterdam. An explosion of fashionable and artistic people showed up.
Last summer (2013) he launched his first haute couture collection ” Beautiful Shining black crow” in Amsterdam. This collection existed of dark pieces with a touch of darkness and glamour, an interesting combination. Besides, the haute couture collection he currently wants to show the world that he can also design ready to wear clothing. The collection that’s now in sale at Margreeth Olsthoorn exists of pieces that are very elegant but thrilling. For example the grey blended overall working suit, an outfit for work that exists of one piece.
For the opening a few pieces of the haute couture collection were showed on lifelike dolls, the ready to made pieces at clothing hangers. There was one model walking in the shop in a creation of Rachid, a black glitter dress that was hiding her face.
Margreeth Olsthoorn’s shop is the ultimate place to show the collection. The shop is large,bright and very clarifying. The other brands in the shop are mainly very beautiful basics of innovative modern designers like Ann Demeulemeester or Individuals made by students of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute.
