Contemporary fashion

Antwerp is home to a dynamic fashion community. Much of the generation that first came to prominence during the 1980s as the ‘Antwerp Six’ still live and work in the city. Many talented young designers have since graduated from the Fashion Department of the Antwerp Academy and gone on to achieve international success. What unites these designers is not a style but a sensibility – respect for technical skills and quality materials, and a highly individual fashion vision.
