‘ZOOM, eyes on Dutch fashion’ is a visual journey through the history of Dutch fashion from 1950 to the present. The exhibition consists of over 150 photographs work with the crème de la crème of all Dutch designers, photographers, stylists and models. If you are fashionista then make sure you visit this exhibition when you are in The Hague.
The Hague was recently in the news, but I couldn’t find a video to embed. So this is a bit late but still worth posting.

The Hague a good place to live
I love the international character of my city. Originally from Australia I have lived in The Hague since 1989. The plan was to stay for a couple of years but now more than 20 years later I am still here.
Growing up in The Hague I used to hang out a lot in the city centre. I even met my Tunisian husband in a café down town. Now we have two daughters and live in Escamp, the south west part of city.
I work in the Archipel neighbourhood at the WBII, an international network for entrepreneurial women. The WBII focuses on small business entrepreneurs creating a network for like minded people. We organise business-focused events and connect the international members to the local businesses creating unique networking opportunities.
Last year I even started my own business Orange Buzz offering web solutions for both businesses and individuals to improve their online presence. I enjoy sharing my online know-how and helping others get the most out of the internet. Being a self confessed web-junkie my business is an extension of what I was already doing. With over 5 years blogging experience, koffiekitten.com is my main blog, I now have multiple blogs. This year I joined forces with HappyHotelier setting up this blog to promote my home city.
Somewhat of a gypsy I have lived in different parts across the city and love each part for very different reasons. There is a lot to see and do but even now I still discover new places and things to do. While one day I might move abroad I plan to stay here until then and I really do miss The Hague when I go abroad, or even to other cities in The Netherlands, feeling instantly at home once we cross over the city limits.
Open for over 20 years the New Meyva serves specialities from Suriname. Their roti’s are a true treat. Friendly staff make you feel at home and are ready to help you order if you are not familiar with the dishes. Just around the corner from the Paard and across from the cafes on the Grote Markt it is a populair place for a quick bite before hitting the town. There are enough places to sit and you can also take away and call ahead to place your order. Things to order: chicken filet roti speciaal, lamb roti & white rice and pom.
