Antwerp , Burgundian exuberance , world diamond center , historic art city … enough reasons to spend a day here .
But did you know that Antwerp is a highly renowned fashion center ? The Antwerpse Fashion Academy has produced several top designers and the streets around the ModeNatie is bustling with young fashion talent.
Many international renowed designers have their (artistic) roots in Antwerp .
Antwerp, city of Fashion, is certainly indebted to the pioneers of the fashion movement, the so-called ‘Antwerp Six ‘: Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene , Dirk Bikkembergs and Marina Yee.
When they introduced their avant-garde creations to the world in London in the eighties, they instantly conquered the fashion world with their very distinct vision.
Carolien will take you to the heart of this bustling fashion city.
Strolling through shopping streets with their windows, exploring neighborhoods that are/have been important in the development of Antwerp as a fashion city you’ll get more and more insight into fashion, trends, distribution and image.
We will visit the forum of the ModeNatie and end our tour in the commercial center of the fashion scene with a delicious glass of champagne
