Urban Special

Fashionshow Judith van Vliet X Amber Ambrose Aurèle

We Make M-ODE is a multi-disciplinary fashion event (20-24 June) that connects the city of Amsterdam and its inhabitants with innovative and sustainable visions on fashion and its makers. We offer a stage for product and protest, for sustainable entrepreneurship and necessary innovation. The We Make M-ODE route embraces collaborations with: West District, WOW, Vondel CS & Circl.

The M-ODE Foundation supports talented Fashion Designers, Developers & Entrepreneurs, to create sustainable and healthy businesses.

Judith is a sustainable fashion designer who creates her own world within her concepts. Each collection or item contains a story, from a little personal story to social and environmental issues: her fashion is much more than just clothes. To empower her stories, she is always looking for the right materials. That’s why Judith finds it challenging to combine conventional clothes with unconventional materials and shapes, resulting in collections that can be both clothes and art.

Judith's work has been shown at Amsterdam Fashion Week, the Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week, Cologne Fashion Days, Salone del Mobile (Milan), Identity Dress (Ljubljana) and many more.

Amber Ambrose Aurèle is known for her visually unique work and sky-high heels. As a designer, she explores the boundaries of fashion and art through her shoe designs. She holds an MA in Shoe Design from ArtEZ Arnhem (2012) and an MA in Art History from the University of Amsterdam (2012). Her academic background makes her research process unique and elevates her vision of beauty and design. Her creations have a sweet and twisted view that combines fine handwork techniques with innovative technology or (sustainable) material. As a modern-day designer, Amber thinks it is important that you are critical of yourself and society but also reflect on the fashion industry and think about craftsmanship, fair trade, and sustainability.

Every design is meticulously crafted and is unique within the style. With her designs, Amber does not follow trends, but she makes shoes strongly based on concepts. She always questions the status quo and contradictions such as those of the femme fatale and the femme fragile.
