|Edwin Oudshoorn: Wie eine Hinde|
Posted in Fashion » Fashion Blog » Fashion Pictures » Fashion Show
On Friday, July 9, Edwin Oudshoorn showed his newest collection called Wie eine Hinde.
The collection was inspired by a man called Joop Kortkamp. In 1943, when he was 20 years old, his parents turned him over to the Germans because he was a homosexual. He was deported to a workcamp, but escaped through his charm, his flair and his lust for life. He was called "Pretty Johan" and paraded on red heels that he had found. The German security guard at the camp would shout out that he walked "Wie eine Hinde" (like a deer), which the collection title refers to. After 7 months Joop knew that he must get out of Germany and escaped to Amsterdam.
Joop created his own dreamworld. Together with his partner Jopie and their dog Fuji he lead a relatively happy life. A house full of colour, gold, mirrors, flowers and crystal, which is also reflected in the collection. Also the '40s vibe is clearly present.
