belmodo.be wrote about the graduation collection…
“Never seen it on the catwalk before and it certainly surprised me. Woody took care of one fashion clash who worked damn well between Western culture and the Middle East. We all know the traditional Islamic costumes such as the burqa and nikab. The young designer definitely wanted to integrate these items into his collection and make 1 a major fashion culture. This is the "Dutch Collection".

“1 of his main prints from the collection there was one to never forget. He got his inspiration from the, as he described it himself, typical Turkish bag. I think we've all seen them pass on the street. The large blue, red, white striped bag with which we will do the laundry in the laundry room. Yes, Woody gets his impressive print from this ugly thing. The print was given a new dimension and was used in joggings, robes and bourkas. Fabrics such as polyester and plastic were used to create volume for the collection. "
