As is the case every year in Prinsjesdag, this year’s Dutch royals and guests dressed up in specials. Queen Maxima wore up-and-coming Moroccan-Dutch designer Mohamed Benchellal.
At Prinsjesdag, clothing is not only beautiful, but also a way to make a political statement. For example, choosing a particular designer can make sense. Queen Maxima chose to design Mohamed Benchellal, an Amsterdam fashion designer of Moroccan origin.

Mohamed Benchalal works only with recycled materials such as fabrics or materials in stock. “Treating raw materials and recycled materials can be a challenge. I learned to cut as best I could,” he says Vogue magazine. International personalities such as Billy Porter, Priyanka Chopra, Natalia Vodianova, Sharon Stone, Iris Apfel and Alicia Keys have already been spotted with his designs.

Queen Maxima appeared last week in a gray-blue dress with a sash wrapped around her ankles. A great example of Ben Shallal designs. His clothes are very structured but at the same time seamless. The designs do not define the body, but rather play with proportions and volume. A recurring theme in his work is respect for the strength and beauty of women.
