Hoorn fashion town
Gister was het met recht zondag! De zon scheen, de lucht was prachtig blauw. Jasper had hier gelogeerd en nadat we hem naar huis teruggebracht hadden, wilden we even ergens gaan wandelen. Maar we belandden in Hoorn, de dichtstbijzijnde stad. Daar was het gezellig druk.
Yesterday could well be called Sunday! The sun was shining, the sky was beautifully blue. Jasper (eldest GS) had stayed the night and after we'd taken him home we wanted to go for a walk somewhere. But we ended up in Hoorn, our nearby town. There were a nice lot of people around there.
Er was een evenement: Hoorn Modestad.
De winkels waren voor een groot deel open. In een van de grote kerken was een grote modeshow, op straat werd muziek gemaakt.
An event was on, called 'Hoorn Fashion Town'.
Many shops were open. There was a fashion parade in one of the big old churches, music was made in the street.
This band had and was so much fun!
We hadden geen tijd voor de modeshow in de kerk, maar even verderop, in de Kruisstraat hadden drie modezaken samen een modeshow georganiseerd. Op straat. Er stonden stoeltjes. Er was een hapje en een drankje. Er was muziek. Kortom: ik bleef daar even.
We didn't have enough time to go and see the fashion show in the church, but a little further on four shops together had organised their own parade. In the street. There were seats. There was something to eat and drink. There was music. In short: I stayed a while.
Soon the first models left their shop. We could see where the clothing that was shown came from on the sign the man in white held up. The people around me compared him with Pietje Bell, a figure in an old Dutch children's book (naughty little boy, this Pietje). I think he could look a bit like Pietje. The man was from the luggage shop opposite which I was sitting, called Le Bagage. Nice shop, nice bags.
Next shop, next models.
The balloons on the different shops through the whole town showed which shops took part in the event. It looked very cheerful.
I hadn't known about this shop before (Sara Chang), but I'll definitely go and have a look there. Especially their jackets were beautiful. I have no picture of my favorite jacket, because in our hurry we hadn't thought of taking a camera. Fortunately Jan's mobile phone could take these pictures.
De zomertijd is gister weer ingegaan. Dit was een goede manier om de zomer te beginnen!
Yesterday Dutch summertime started. This was a good way to begin summer!
