W Amsterdam is proud to introduce the first ever Dutch edition of What She Said, a new female driven speakers session that connects powerful and progressive women at W Hotels Worldwide around the world.
For this first edition of What She Said, we’ve collaborated with our concept store X BANK, which gives home to over 180 Dutch labels and designers in art, fashion and design. The panel discussion will be led by international trend forecaster and X BANK designer Antoinette Van Den Berg. She will be joined by:
• Alexandra Vollebregt, the designer behind the colourful and bright womens wear label, Alexandra Frida. Her designs accentuate the female silhouette whilst highlighting the power of a women’s body.
• Sontaya Bluangtook, an architect/associate at one of the world's leading architectural firms, UNStudio. With her keen eye for design, Sontaya works at multiple scales from large urban projects to interiors to product design. UNStudio has recently expanded their portfolio into fashion by collaborating with Dutch brand United Nude to create their first 3D printed shoe. The shoes will later become available at X BANK as well. For more information about the shoe project between UNStudio & United Nude: https://www.unstudio.com/en/page/394/unx2
• Loes Vrij fashion design, a lady who after working as a lawyer for many years decided to follow her true passion, which resulted in her own namesake label that creates beautiful and high end women’s bags.
Join us at X BANK for a vibrant panel discussion about the future of fashion and the female role and vision in this ever changing industry whilst enjoying your cocktail.
