Meet the young talent behind McCarbie
Caroline Helsen is only seventeen but she is already conquering the hearts of everyone in the fashion industry who used to or still loves Barbie. The Instagram account McCarbie, a combination of her name Caroline and Barbie created when she was sixteen, includes mini designer outfits from the latest collections you can spot at the Fashion Weeks.
It’s time for Barbie to step up her game with the most fashionable looks of the moment. “When I was 13, I was fed up with the typical glitter clothes for Barbie so I decided to sew my own clothes for me and my sister, which we thought was way cooler.”

Viktor&Rolf at Rotterdam

Viktor&Rolf at Rotterdam

This month I visited an exhibition about two Dutch designers named Viktor&Rolf. Both friends who met at school established their brand after their names in 1993 and soon got well known in the fashion industry including collections with a mix of avant-garde and art.

SHOW 2018 – Fashion Department 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?
