Experience fashion

Antwerp and fashion is mentioned in the same sentence time and again and has been since the 1980’s. A courageous group of six young Antwerp Fashion Academy graduates put Antwerp in the spotlight when they hired a van and crossed the channel to show their wares at British Design Show,  ‘The Antwerp Six’ made up of Walter Van Beirendonck, Dries van Noten, Dirk van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs, Marina Yee, Ann Demeulemeester and later joined by Martin Margiela made headlines in the fashion world. They returned home, leaving the studios of London, Paris and Milan behind.  They sparked a fashion city that today is a hive of creativity turning out new talent daily.
