200 jaar Koninkrijk, Hello World!

Maastricht, August 30, 2014.


On Saturday 30 August in Maastricht the National Committee for the Bicentenary of the Kingdom will be holding the fourth of six national events, entitled Hello World! The theme is the Netherlands’ international outlook, with a focus on culture, politics and trade, with celebrations held at multiple locations throughout the city. His Majesty King Willem-Alexander and Her Majesty Queen Máxima and the heads of state of Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany did attend the festivities.


As purveyor to the Royal Household, Van den Acker is proud partner for the event by sponsoring a substantial amount of fabric for the costumes.

At the picture on the left, the ‘grande finale’, with the special designed blue moiré fabric for the 15 ‘river dresses’, designed by couturier Peter George d’Angelino Tap. The show features ‘Panta Rhei’ (everything flows), beautiful creations, which depict European countries and rivers using flags, symbols and heraldry. 

Made in Holland since 1807
