This month Fashion Souvenirs visits Holland, or rather the Netherlands, perhaps the world's ultimate springtime destination. The Dutch bulb fields are as much a celebrated and colourful sight as the Fall in New England. With the Queen's Birthday on 30th April, the whole country turns orange (the Dutch national colour) Spring offers the perfect time to discover the land of the tulip, the clog, the windmill and Nijntje (Miffy).
