Dutch Fashion & Design will join SALON/ to Aruba

Marga Weimans 'Wonderland' (2009)
Aruba and the Netherlands have an historical connection. 
"Aruba is still one of the four constituent countries that form the Kingdom of the Netherlands, together with the NetherlandsCuraçao, and Sint Maarten whose citizens share a single nationality: Dutch citizen. In March 1983 Aruba finally reached an official agreement within the Kingdom for Aruba's Independence, which would occur in a series of steps granting increasing autonomy. In August 1985 Aruba drafted a constitution that was unanimously approved. On 1 January 1986, after elections were held for Aruba's first parliament, Aruba seceded from the Netherlands Antilles and officially became a country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Full independence was set for 1996." - Source: Wikipedia.
It is now over 25 years Aruba has the so called “Status Aparte”. But the relationship with the Netherlands remains and will always be something special. It's in the DNA of Aruba.

Therefore, an impressive number of Dutch Fashion & Design will join SALON/ to Aruba!

For example,  during the Aruban fashion week Aruba In Style Mattijs van Bergen, Marga Weimans, Edwin Oudshoorn and three fashion design graduates of ArtEZ Art Academy will present their collections on the runway on the 4th of November 2011.
But there is more: during the special 'Mens Club' on the 3rd of November Dutch men's fashion designers like Hyun Yeu and Quoc Thang will be represented. In the various locations of AIS/SALON we can also see several couture pieces of our international fashion pride Viktor & Rolf, collected by a private collector of the finer arts of various international and local fashion talents. And there is more Dutch fashion: Bas Kosters, Marcha Hüskes, Claes Iversen, youasme measyou, Antoine Peters, Pauline van Dongen, and Saskia van Drimmelen and Margreet Sweerts of Painted Series who organise a special workshop called Painted Table Dress (2+3 Nov.) 
Other Dutch representatives on AIS/SALON are photographers Philippe Vogelenzang, Viviene Sassen, Freudental/Verhagen, Fur Free, Scheltens Abbenes, Zara Zerny and Mustafa Ozen
And that’s not all, also we have art work of Lernert & Sander, Cloudfactory, Kate van Harreveld, Petra Lunenberg and
