YDU'S 5TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION ON FEBRUARY 14, 2008
50% discount on all sales items
Dear Clients of YDU,

time passed by so quickly, and I can't believe it's already been 5 years of fun and fashion at our store at the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam. The 5th birthday of YDU on February 14 is a little milestone for me, and I am proud of the designers and the team I was lucky to gather around me. It were 5 really exciting years, also on a private level, where the birth of my son Lev added a great deal of extra sunshine to my daily life.

YDU wouldn't be there without you, our loyal clients. I want to thank you for your trust and offer you a discount of 50% on all sales items on our birthday: Valentinesday, February 14.

Come and visit us from 10am to 20pm to celebrate our birthday with us.

I hope to see you on Thursday

Your sincerely

Angelika Groenendijk-Wasylewski

Owner & Founder YDU

Schouderklopje met Stijl!
Schouderklopje.nu en Young Designers United lanceren op 7 november aanstaande een limited T-shirt collectie ‘Waardering loont’
Geef je medemensen vaker een oprechte blijk van waardering – dat is het idee achter Schouderklopje.nu, een concept van OPENSA. Schouderklopje.nu en Young Designers United zijn een coöperatie begonnen en hebben een limited edition van bijzondere T-shirts met een sterke boodschap gecreëerd. Geef zo’n T-shirt weg en je genereert onmiddellijk een gevoel van oprechte waardering!

Over Schouderklopje.nu

Met hun concept Schouderklopje.nu wil OPENSA mensen inspireren om meer waardering en respect voor ‘de medemens’ te tonen. Een schouderklopje zorgt voor een goed gevoel. Een schouderklopje kan je ook metaforisch en fashionable geven middels deze limited edition van design T-shirts van YDU – Young Designers United by S-ter. Zo een metaforisch schouderklopje is een originele, leuke en duurzame manier om waardering te tonen voor ‘de medemens’ of groepen in de zakelijke of prive omgeving. Deze exclusieve limited edition van design T-shirts, is uiterst geschikt voor een compliment op maat.

Over Young Designers United (ydu.nl) en S-ter

Young Designers United is een initiatief die jonge ontwerpers steunt, die een eigen label oprichten.YDU stelt ook een highlight voor modeliefhebbers voor, die altijd op zoek zijn naar exclusieve, individuele en unieke kleding. Ester Peters staat als ontwerpster achter het label S-TER. Voor het limited edition project van schouderklopje.nu heeft ze trendy highfashion T-shirts ontworpen die vooral het gevoel goed weergeven van “iemand een schouderklopje geven”.

Ze heeft bij de ontwerpen sterke elementen uit haar eigen collectie gebruikt. Zoals de print op het damesshirt is ontstaan uit een foto van haar vorige collectie en de bloemen ook in haar andere designs te vinden zijn.” Bloemen zijn voor mij altijd een soort cadeautje , mensen worden er vrolijk van en vinden het altijd leuk om te krijgen!” Bij de herenshirts heeft ze als uitgangspunt ’t hart (onder de riem steken) gebruikt. De shirts zijn dan ook duidelijk herkenbaar aan haar specifieke stijl en zijn flashy en eigenwijs.

Twee unieke concepten presenteren een “niet te imiteren” product

De nieuwe collectie “YDU by S-ter voor Schouderklopje.nu” wordt gelanceerd op 7 november om 15:00 bij YDU (Keizersgracht 447 1017 DK Amsterdam). Voorafgaand geven Schouderklopje.nu ambassadeurs de hele dag een 2 minuten workshop ‘Waardering loont’ in het centrum van Amsterdam. De collectie is vanaf 7 november verkrijgbaar bij YDU en een aantal andere winkels in Nederland. Graag nodigen wij u uit om naar de presentatie te komen en een glas champagne met ons te drinken.

Young Designers United presents Haute Couture at the Van Gogh Museum
Exhibition "Barcelona 1900" interpreted by YDU’s young fashion talents on November 2 2007
Press Release

Young Designers United (YDU), a collective of young and upcoming fashion designers, has been exclusively invited to perform an Haute Couture Show inspired by the new exhibition "Barcelona 1900" at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

The Exhibition

Until January 20 2008, the Van Gogh Museum presents the landmark exhibition "Barcelona 1900", which celebrates the astonishing transformation of the vibrant city Barcelona between 1880 and 1909. In this period Barcelona underwent an impressive architectural development and flourished socially and artistically.The exhibition provides an insight into a city which continues to intrigue visitors and inspire artists and architects to this day. Some 200 works of art including paintings, drawings and sculpture and also furniture, jewellery, scale models, films, stage scenery and mosaics reveal the remarkable breadth of artistic creation.

Evolution of an Haute Couture Show

Since weeks 9 designers who are part of Young Designers United, and one guest designer from Barcelona are working day and night on amazing Haute Couture dresses and the sewing machines are red-hot.

The creations are based on a preview of the exhibition that was given by a curator of the Van Gogh Museum. The challenge is to interpret the essence of the exhibition "Barcelona 1900" into contemporary Haute Couture. The collections are thus reflecting not only the background and concepts, but also the spirit and mood and contrasts of "Barcelona 1900" and were inspired by the fascinating developments in art, architecture and design at that period in Barcelona.

The Designers

YDU selected Yosha by Scarlet Arrow and Amber Rose, Heidi Long, Guten Appetit, Pricci by Priscilla Reynolds, Jürgen Christian Hörl, Amm Couture, Joy.c and Dress’d by Ellen Benders, and invited the Spanish Designer Luka to interpret this stunning exhibition.

The Setting

YDU has invited Valentina Lacmanovic, a dancer from Barcelona, who will open the show together with the French singer Erik Karol (Countertenor and Baritone).

He has been the singer and principal character of the famous Cirque du Soleil Show "Dralion" in the US and Europe for more than 5 years, highlighted by performances in London at the Royal Albert Hall. Erik Karol is just starting the production of his solo album, written in English, Spanish and French.
