From next month Ronald Kolk Haute Couture will be present also in the U.A.E. territories thank to a collaboration with Amsterdam Fashion Tv and I.F.N. Network that has deep synergies with the important fashion representatives and distributors within the United Arab Emirates. “We will represent this prestigious brand in exclusive in those territories. The presence of this amazing dutch designer within the U.A.E. territories is a natural and aspected  thing” said Manuel Ivan Maria Perrotta ceo of Amsterdam Fashion Tv who sealed the deal himself.

Ronald Kolk’s goal is to create beauty for people to enjoy. An article of clothing can be of tremendous importance to a woman. Who does not know the pronunciation

“You never get the chance to make a first impression”.

Women who wear the designs of Ronald Kolk will feel secure and self-confident.  His clientele is very diverse and internationally oriented. Businesswomen, lawyers and politicians, royalty but also artists and professional entertainers. Kolk takes into consideration that what an artist can wear is very different from what a politician can wear. Their professional motivations for distinguishing themselves differ strongly, so Kolk adapts his designs accordingly.

Ronald Kolk’s often colourful and optimistic designs are characterized by the use of exclusive materials, such as silk chiffon, hand-woven tweeds and lace, which he brings from Europe. Moreover, he has mastered the art of shaping the material through traditional techniques like moulding and appliqué.

Kolk designs corporate clothing, among other things for hotels, restaurants and wellness centres. Also theatre clothing, opera, ballet and musical. In his early years as a designer when he lived in America, he designed for big stars like:

Grace Jones, Bette Middler, Pointer Sisters, 3 degrees, Tina Turner, Bianca Jagger.

Ronald Kolk has among other designed corporate clothing for:

– Restaurant La Rive in Amsterdam (1 Michelin Star)

– Restaurant Vossius in Amsterdam (2 Michelin Stars)

– Restaurant Villa de Duinen in Noordwijk aan Zee (1 Michelin Star)

– Double Tree Hotel by Hilton in Amsterdam

Recently he has the corporate clothing designed for the entire staff of the Five Star Hotel Inter Continental Amstel Amsterdam.

My fashion illustration is inspired by the theme ‘Classiques à la Nouvelle’ at Ronald Kolk’s 29th fashionshow. The traditional craft of making clothes in a new guise. Beautiful fabrics of major fashion houses in England and France as Chanel and Dior.

But, we still have to have a little patience for the coming show. At this moment Ronald Kolk designs a new winter collection 2015/2016 for his anniversary show september 7th – 2015.

I’m very curious and i’ve seen wonderful details already!
