Puppets & Dolls
Dutch fashion designer Bas Kosters has created an installation with his puppets and dolls for the festival ‘Poppen in Beweging’ at the Amsterdam Theatre Bellevue.
Puppets – mostly odd looking – recur in the work of Bas Kosters as in garments, prints and accessories, since he has always been fascinated by dolls and cuddly animals. It’s the first time that his work has been linked to a theatre festival, but Bas Kosters’ shows come as theatrical performances on their own. So can we expect a Bas Kosters Theatre Show next? “I don’t have any education in that direction, but I do have the ambition to make a musical with my last and new collection, combined with selfcomposed music,” tells the designer.
Bas Kosters recently launched his Beat Collection for beer brand Heineken at the last edition of the Amsterdam International Fashion Week and is currently working on his new collection presentation.
