The Arnhem region is throbbing with creativity and innovation. The city’s ArtEZ Academy of Art & Design has produced the likes of Marcel Wanders, Daan Roosegaarde and Victor & Rolf, and the creativity is showcased at the annual Fashion + Design Festival Arnhem as well as State of Fashion which has evolved from the Arnhem Mode Biënnale. But Arnhem also has plenty of fashion and design for you to admire – and buy – all year round! In the ‘Modekwartier’ fashion quarter, you can see the designers at work and purchase their latest creations from them directly. And if you’re looking for something a little different when shopping in the city centre, head just off the main high street with all the major chain stores and you’ll find the ‘7straatjes’ zone full of small, independent boutiques selling unique products.
