20 Vintage Photos Show Beautiful Women's Fashion of the Late 1960s in Amsterdam

Born in the Netherlands East Indies (now Indonesia) in 1931 Edgar Vos studied fashion at Amsterdam's prestigious art school, the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, and then went to France to gain work experience.

Vos has a successful chain of fifteen boutique clothing stores known as Edgar Vos Boutiques around the Netherlands, featuring designs that flatter all body types and fit all budgets. His clients included Dutch singers and actresses and Princess Christina, the sister of Dutch Queen Beatrix. But his designs had worldwide appeal and he had a loyal overseas clientele.

“My designs have always been ladylike,” he said. “I have never had an experimental period. Fashion is not a free art form — you always have to deal with two breasts and two buttocks.”

In the 1970s he built up his empire of stores and showed his clothes with fellow Amsterdam-based Dutch designers such as Frans Molenaar. He staged his last catwalk show in 2000.
