High fashion orchid & anthurium show at Keukenhof

Thursday 5 April OZ Export were present during Europe’s biggest Orchid and Anthurium show at the Keukenhof.

Famous Dutch fashion designer Ronald Kolk and Master Florist Dries Lecke work together for many years. Kolk designed the haute-couture collection for the show and Lecke used flowers to complement these outfits.

The meet & greet with the growers kicked off with a warm welcome by Henk de Mooij (Keukenhof) and a speech by Ronald Kolk. In January Kolk and Lecke started building the show and just an hour before opening it was ready. Kolk’s red jacket matched the show perfectly. Red gowns, flowers and a lot of love and romance made the show very inspiring. The little details of the designs are breathtaking. Kolk used the colour red as the foundation of his presentation.

Normally Kolk’s designs were inspired by the Orchids but this year he loved to work with the red Anthuriums. The dresses and flowers are united into true fashion statements. But, this was not the first time that the Anthuriums are the muse of the fashion designer. In 2017 Kolk used the Anthurium for his exclusive haute-couture fashion show.
