Amsterdam Fashion Week A/W 13/14 was marked by its great efforts in broadening the visibility of local designers worldwide and raising serious questions about the future of fashion. While the shows presented advances in design aesthetics in the approach of distinct techniques and abstract thinking, deeper conversations on the use of fur, investments in quality crafts in opposition to marketing capitalization, and other major issues, enunciating old x new paradigms, were taking place at the Firestarters and Sustainable Stories talking sessions.
