This week is fashion week in Amsterdam.  As a lesser-known fashion capital, the AIFW is billed as "a young and directional alternative to the world’s more traditional fashion weeks". So what does this mean for mere mortals and fashionistas alike?  Well, it seems the city has embraced fashion week with ease.  As well as the fabulous catwalk shows showcasing Dutch and International fashion, there seems to be something to get everyone feeling the glamour. The natural overspill of fashion activity is appearing at the city’s relaxed arts organisations as well as on the catwalk.  Events for everyone include photographs on the life and work of Dutch fashion designer Frans Molenaar at the Melkweg, and fashion photography by Sylvia Alonso at Foam. Fashion week runs from 25th to 30th January 06.
