I’ve told you before about Arnhem, Piet Paris and a future fashion hotel. Now there’s more information available. Like the name and the openingsdate. The name, MODEZ, is a composition of mode (fashion), design and ArtEZ (Institute of the Arts where Viktor & Rolf graduated among others). Illustrator Piet Paris asked several fashion designers (with their roots in Arnhem) to design the rooms. So it’s a bit different than the Exchange Hotel done by fashion students, and the Teaching Hotel done by interior designers. The opening is scheduled in August 2012. In the press release they also tell us that José Teunissen (Professor of Fashion Design) and Coming Soon are taking part in the proces as consultants. I’m curious!
No website yet, I’ll keep you posted.
