Bas Kosters’ Floral Affair
Despite the autumnal weather, the sun was shining bright at the presentation of fashion designer Bas Kosters for flower platform mooiwatbloemendoen.nl. For the occasion, Bas Kosters had covered cute male models in one-off flower outfits during A Floral Affair at Rockstart Spaces in the city centre Amsterdam.
On the backdrop of a baroque ballroom, the models moved in full bloom on the beats of Joost van Bellen. Bas Kosters announced every individual model representing one of the 15 favourite flowers of the moment. As a true ‘Lady Speaker’ he explained the creations and flower inspirations.
The catwalk show was organised to support the Lievelings Bloem – favourite flower – campaign by mooiwatbloemendoen.nl. Giving flowers is a great gift in itself, but giving someone’s favourite flower makes it even more special and personal. We couldn’t agree more.
After the show, the guests were invited to pick the flowers from the models and create their own bouquet. Among the 15 flowers were the Alstroemeria, Amaryllis, Call, Cymbidium, Gloriosa and Rose. The beautiful floral selection made it hard to select your favourite one, but I believe the Celosia has my name on it. It’s a rather flamboyant flower that stands for naughtiness and comes in all sorts of colours.
