Dutch Fashion – Forget wooden shoes and get to know real Dutch fashion

While walking down the streets of Amsterdam the other day, I realized how diverse and edgy Dutch fashion is and how, weirdly enough, it is quite unknown to fashionistas around the world. Yes, everyone has heard about Viktor & Rolf and the well-known supermodels Doutzen Kroes, Mark van der Loo, Lara Stone and Karen Mulder, but what about hard-core fashion? What about designers? Paris, Milan, London… what about Amsterdam!?

Anne Frank House – An afternoon at the Anne Frank House Museum

Located upon the banks of the majestic Prinsengracht Canal, within the stylish Jordaan district of Amsterdam, is the truly fascinating Anne Frank House Museum. Regarded as one of the city’s top tourist attractions, welcoming around one million visitors each year, this inspirational museum is where you can explore the secret annex in which Anne Frank and her Jewish family concealed themselves from the Nazis during the Second World War.
