Streetlab isn’t just a great place to get your fix of fashion, there is also a long list of artists – from graffiti writers to graphic designers – at hand. Example in case? Bitches in Control: three chicks (F.Lady, Meggie and Lowlita) who have been working together since 2003. They paint murals, make silk-screen prints, produce their own graffiti and street art magazine titled ‘Catfight’ and run their own fashion label: Hübsch & Hardcore. Talk about some busy ‘bitches’!
You can also marvel at the murals and other (spray) painted works of Verenigde Straten. This Amsterdam-based street collective was born at Streetlab Showoff#1, which was held at 11, Amsterdam. Put the five members of the collective together, that is Crackpot, Hetzer, Kom, Sopa000 and Mike Clark, and you’ll end up with raw, no-holds-barred work. You have been warned!
The heart of the Streetlab Festival is a large-scale exhibition that features work from both national and international artists and fashion designers. Fifty containers have been placed in Zuiveringshal West. Here the participating designers, photographers, artists and other creatives will present their work to the public.
