MEET THE MIND BEHIND MODE D'AMOUR

Get to know Annemiek Kessels, the mind behind our favourite style-inspiration Instagram account, Mode D'amour!

HOMETOWN?

I live in a small town in the south of The Netherlands. It’s actually quite boring but my family lives here. I still think about moving abroad all the time but haven’t made the decision yet! 

WHAT DID YOU STUDY?

I studied Styling for one year at the Fashion Academy in Amsterdam but didn’t finish it. I was still young and I worked full time, studied and I was also blogging so it was too much for me at the time.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOB & MODE D’AMOUR!

Mode D’amour started as a hobby and a way to share my style and inspirations about 11 years ago. I could have never imagined back then all the amazing opportunities and things I’ve achieved along the way! 

STAR SIGN?

Virgo! 

TYPICAL DAY IN YOUR LIFE?

I don’t have a typical day, I always decide in the morning how my day is going to be if I don’t have any work or appointments. I do try to stay balanced, I love to spend my free time walking with my dog and enjoy the little things in life.

FAVOURITE TRAVEL DESTINATIONS?

Italy. Until last year I spend most of my holiday’s in Paris. Last year I went to Rome for the first time and I plan to go back to Italy again this year! I do have a major travel wish list, which includes New York and Australia on top of the list!

FAVOURITE PEOPLE TO FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM?

I have so many! Some of my favourites are Julie Pelipas, Christine Centenera and Elin Kling.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?

The internet (of course!), runway shows, I love searching for inspirational photos to share on my inspiration account @mode.damour, the streets, movies, design and architecture.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR MODE DAMOUR?

I never know, I don’t like to ‘plan’ things up front, I will just see where it takes me!

 FAVOURITE NAKEDVICE PIECE?

The Leon Snake! It’s perfect for Spring/Summer!
