Remember that we hosted an exclusive Friday Afternoon drink for Ilja Visser with Flore Zoé as special guest?? This creative get-together was for invitees only on a hidden location with an absolute view on Amsterdam.
But The Hidden World reveals...that's what we do. So we love to share this video where people in fashion and photography came together.
If you like to be part of our next event zoom in on our site and stay tuned with ABSOLUT NL. Maybe you'll be on the guest list and featuring in the next vid ;-)
It's been an amazing three months for The Hidden World. We can confirm that time flies if you have fun. We're proud that we could launch the platform with Dutch fashion designer Ilja Visser. And now the time has come to say goodbye to her world of beautiful fashion.
But before we enter another hidden world, we look back.....with gratitude!
The Hidden World has the pleasure to often visit the office & studio of Ilja Visser. Everytime we do, we stop by Anette – the creative designer - to get a quick glance on what she’s working on at that moment. After a few short visits, we were allowed to hang out for a whole day with her to get the ins & outs of her work. An offer we couldn’t refuse! We have so many stories to tell but let us first introduce Anette and tell you why she loves her job so much…
The Hidden World already learned that Nina as the Brand Manager for Ilja Visser has a lot on her plate but succeeds to stay on top and ahead of her game. We wanted to know if she ever gets stressed and if she ever had a blunder or so…
The Hidden World has been on set for a few times for the campaigns of ILJA and Ready to fish_. We’ve mistaken her for a model first but soon Ilja corrected us to say that Nina was her Brand manager. After observing her on the job we invited Nina for an interview during lunch hours (she’s busy busy busy). Read more on this ambitious and fashionable woman with a love for beautiful images and food….
It's going to be a busy weekend for Ilja and her team of Ready to fish_ in Paris @ Tranoi as you can read from her tweets. But with a true passion for discovering relatively unknown music from around the globe, they managed to say hello to the weekend for you. They do that every week by sharing a song on their Facebook-page to get you in the weekend-mood.
The Hidden World sat down with Agatha and Danijela of Ilja’s design team. Both got back from a trip to Munich and Paris looking for fabrics. Hidden World wanted to know everything from this trip and found out that choosing a fabric is something of a love affair….
The past weeks we have enjoyed the positive response on our couture exhibition and Ready to fish_ fashion film. But after showing our creations we also need to sell them. That’s when we pack our bags and clothes (of course…) and head towards fashion weeks in Milan and Paris. Besides all the haute couture shows there, you also have the fashion trade shows. First stop? Milan in bella Italia!
It’s freezing outside the past week!! So everybody’s dressed up in their winter wardrobe here in Amsterdam. But the shopping windows already show the Spring & Summer collections, and our Ready to fish_ brandstore is no exception. Fashion seasons run a little bit different ….
During the exhibition, Ilja Visser also premiered the fashion film of next year's A/W collection for her ready-to-wear label Ready to fish_ And now we can show it to you!
Remember how Ilja explained the concept of the collection, Wanderlust? It relates to the strong desire to wander, explore and discover in stillness and silence. The Hidden World was even invited to the set of the shoot. Ilja told us all about the to-do list, preparations and what happens while shooting including the non-glamorous side of things. Studio Sunday was so kind to give all the details behind the music for the film. Now watch how it all comes together with this film. Enjoy!
The Hidden World was invited to come and check out the exhibition of Hyperborea and Wanderlust on the opening day. Our friends from ABSOLUT Vodka were there as well to help celebrate all the hard work of Ilja and her team.
Naturally, The Hidden World also went the day before.... Here are some photo's to give you a feeling of what it means to get everything ready ;-)
Yesterday was the launch of Ready to fish_ CD3 @ F95 in Berlin with the band Tula and ABSOLUT cocktails. But The Hidden World discovered there's more music to show in Ilja's world. Here's a picture of the music composition for Ready to fish_ fashion film A/W 12&13. We sat down with Dominggus Pelupessy of Studio Sunday to check out what it takes to create music for a fashion film.
Before we started shooting the fashion film for next year's Autumn Winter collection, a lot of things needed to be done. Nina - my marketing & brand manager – had a huge to-do list. Want to know what it was? Here’s the list before there’s even one shot taken:
