YDU viert – 5 jaar jong design op Keizersgracht
Nu het eigen label nog!
Amsterdam, juni 2008

YDU mag trots zijn. Het idee, om 5 jaar geleden een concept store met jong en betaalbaar design te openen, is met succes bekroond.

YDU, Young Designers United viert dit jaar haar 5-jarig bestaan en heeft haar primaire doel bereikt, namelijk het creëren van een win-win situatie voor ontwerpers en klanten. Jonge, opkomende ontwerpers hebben de mogelijkheid, hun eerste collecties direct in de winkel te hangen. Hierdoor krijgen de ontwerpers onmiddellijk feedback en wordt hun zelfvertrouwen gesterkt. De (vaste) klant krijgt op haar beurt steeds het aanbod van verfrissende ontwerpen en snel wisselende nieuwe collecties voor een acceptabele prijs.

“Tot mijn grote genoegen zie ik dat jonge ontwerpers YDU gebruiken om uit te vinden wat zij willen om vervolgens bevestiging te krijgen uit succes en zo vertrouwen opbouwen om verder te groeien,” zegt Angelika Groenendijk, oprichtster van YDU. “Nu, na jaren van leren, vertrouwen wij op onze ervaring en zijn klaar voor de volgende stap – de start van een eigen YDU label, ons eigen huismerk. Dit huismerk zal elk seizoen door 3 YDU ontwerpers gecreëerd worden. ”

In 2009 wil Angelika Groenendijk de eerste collectie van het YDU label lanceren. Als voorpret hebben de ontwerpers alvast een speciale “limited edition” gecreëerd:

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
