Thursday evening was a special night; I was invited to the yearly Zalando Style Icons Awards! I was so excited to go to this amazing event with my best friend Fabienne. There were two categories 'Style Icon of the year' and 'Rising icon of the year'. People could vote for their favorite blogger/influencer and the winners were pronounced on this special evening. There was also a new category this year called 'Creative Style Icon of the year'. I wasn't nominated for the awards but I was really happy to go to this event!
The event was hosted in Amsterdam, in Hotel Arena. I work in Amsterdam so it wasn't a long journey to go to the location. Fabienne picked me up from work and we had a quick dinner. After that we went to Hotel Arena were the event was. We were really excited to go to this event and meet some amazing bloggers and social influencers.
When we got to the hotel we went inside and had some champagne (hmmm... delicious). The location was fabulous, so trendy and breathtaking. The decoration was definitely on point; they decorated the hotel with leaves and the lighting created a beautiful atmosphere. There was live music, a cocktail bar and a photo booth! Cool! I was so inspired by all the fashionistas on this event. Everyone looked amazing!
After a while Yara Michels and Kay Nambiar (the hosts of this evening) pronounced the winners of the awards. The judges of the Zalando Style Icons Awards were Sanne Groot Koerkamp (editor in chief - Glamour), Edine Russel (editor in chief - ELLE), Steven Dahlberg (Fashion Stylist) and Jolanda Smit (Brand Communications Director Zalando).
The winners of the awards were:
Style Icon of the year: Clair Rose Cliteur - @claartjerose
Rising Style Icon of the year: Nicole Huisman - @nicole_huisman
Creative Style Icon of the year: Igrien Liu - @the.avantguardian
I want to thank Zalando for this amazing night and I had so much fun meeting some new bloggers and influencers. It was great!
