SHOW 2018 – Fashion Department Antwerp

SHOW 2018 – Fashion Department Antwerp

June, a month where fashion students show off their hard work to the public. By far the most important one is the graduation show from the students at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. The school is known for its promising names (Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester,…) who graduated in the 80’s and made Belgian fashion happen. Curious to see who are their successors?

Shocking heads at Gucci

Shocking heads at Gucci

Everyone is wondering: what is going at Gucci in Milan? Since the brand came with a shocking runway show (of 89 looks!) for A/W 2018. It was far away from traditional shows in every aspect of it. Are we really going to wear dragon puppies instead of handbags, horns and rattles or even a replica of our own head in our hands?

Behind the scenes at Marie Claire

Behind the scenes at Marie Claire

During my break I had the opportunity to go on a small internship at Marie Claire Belgium where I follow Tine Stoop, an editor for the fashion magazine. Read more to take a look on the life of an editor, how I experienced these 2 days. Ever wondered how fashion articles are made? Think: a lot of writing, writing, and writing.

Take a look at The Vulgar

Take a look at The Vulgar

THE VULGAR – Fashion Redefined is the name of the latest exhibition in Hasselt. Two questions are considered being the main topic: What is good taste and why is something considered vulgar? It’s all about taste in fashion for the past centuries and contemporary fashion. Adam Phillips (psychoanalyst) made twelve definitions of the word ‘vulgar’ and are used throughout the exhibition.
