Special dresses made of sunflower seeds, salmon leather, seaweed and mandarin peels. In the Parktheater in Eindhoven, KBO members enjoyed the special fashion show Natural Beauty on the catwalk. Old and young worked together to get this afternoon done.
Old and young
Fashion connects all ages. That is why the elderly and young people worked together for this fashion show. The show is organized by KBO-Kring Eindhoven and performed together with students from vocational training Summa College and fashion designer Agnes van Dijk. It is a so-called Win-Win project with a subsidy from the national government. The idea behind it: older people can learn from young people and young people can learn from older people. KBO-Brabant has already started working on the Win-Win project in various ways. The young people gain work experience through internships in activities for the elderly. And seniors can enjoy innovative activities. For this afternoon's show, four students from the social work program worked hard behind the scenes to make the fashion show a success.
'During the break, Ans van Zutphen gets a drink at the bar. She calls her visit to the fashion show 'an unexpected gift'. "I was visiting my sister. She took me here. What a good atmosphere and beautiful music. It is also wonderful that young people are involved in the organization"
