AmsterDAMN (I can't beleive I missed it) Fashion Week

Who knew Amsterdam had a fashion week?

Papierdoll Fashion Magazine recently covered Amsterdam International Fashion Week which took place from July 21 - 30, 2007. Some of the fashion designers featured included Andrea Oitin, whose models came down the catwalk in socks (yes, socks!), and Ilja Visser whose collection consists of pieces that any fashion minimalist would find intriguing.
...I think it's important to help spread the word so that people will be exposed to non-mainstream designers.

How To Find Your Size

Men -As a general rule, a man's measurement is the same as his size. Where small, medium, large, etc. are concerned, the best way to ensure proper fit is to know your measurements. Always consult online merchant's size charts and fit tips.

Women -Sizes means nothing!! One manufacturer's size 8 is another one's 12. UK sizes look the same as US, but they're not. Because US sizing has changed over the years, finding your size in vintage clothing can be a challenge. But armed with your accurate measurements, you can decipher any sizing system.
