Show us your look and win tickets to the Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam

A special evening requires a special look. That’s why we want to know: What would you wear to the MBFWA?

If you have already an entire outfit in mind - great! Just take a pic and share it with us on Instagram (instructions below). Do you have a favourite accessory or a special piece of clothing that will be the center of attention for your look? Awesome! If you want to shine and win, you don’t have to show us your whole look. A picture of one single item, like that vintage leather bag, your designer heels or your favorite dress; is enough to participate.

To participate:
* Take a picture of the outfit, an accessory or a certain piece of clothing that you would wear at MBFWA
* Follow @fashionunitedhq on Instagram
* Upload the picture to Instagram
* Tag FashionUnited (@fashionunitedhq) in the picture
* Add the hashtag: #FashionUnitedMBFWA
* Do the above before the 07th of July

The person whose photo gets the most likes, gets to attend their favorite show from the three aforementioned shows. The participant with the second most likes can select one of the two remaining shows. The third winner will be surprised with the remaining show tickets. We will announce the winners on the 8th of July by commenting on the photos, so stay tuned!

Spijkers en Spijkers at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam

The Dutch twin sisters Truus and Riet are the designers behind the label Spijkers en Spijkers. Both sisters studied Fashion design at the College of Art in Arnhem and in 2000 they finished their master at the Fashion Institute Arnhem.

Since the label’s foundation in 2001, Spijkers en Spijkers have built an instantly recognizable and desirable style: one known for its graphic detailing, and distinct use of colour. In 2010 Spijkers en Spijkers created a more accessible line to carry out their vision and draw an opportunity to enlarge their audience in the Netherlands and abroad, named SIS.

Monique Collignon at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam

Monique Collignon is a strong Dutch (Haute) Couture brand, with the potential to conquer the world. Their mission: Empowering women.

Each unique (and numbered) Collignon design is recognizable by its elegant confident feminine cut, its eye-catching allure and stylish appeal that is never out of fashion. Offering features that are fitted to the woman who likes to wear Collignon, it gives a woman power in all her facets.
