The Belgians. An Unexpected Fashion Story, held at the BOZAR center for fine arts in Brussels is an exhibition about the rise and success of Belgian fashion designers. The exhibition takes an in-depth look at the DNA of Belgian fashion and sheds light on the work of around 100 designers, from the first pioneers to the new generation of today.
Since the 1980s it’s impossible to imagine the international fashion scene without Belgian designers. As unexpected as it might seem, the ‘Antwerp Six’ were flavor of the month at the beginning of the 1980s and so it is quite natural to find the Belgian designers in today’s international fashion circuit. The professionalism, craftsmanship, quality and technicality that the Belgians demonstrate, come from the international recognition they have enjoyed for several decades now.
Featuring the work of A.F Vandervost, Ann Demeulemeester, Bernard Willhelm, Cédric Charlier, Dirk Van Saene, Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann, Kris Van Assche, Martin Margiela, Olivier Theyskens, Peter Pilotto and Raf Simons among others, The Belgians is a must go of the Summer 2015 season for any fashion lover.
The Belgians. An Unexpected Fashion Story will run until the 13th of September at the BOZAR center for fine arts in Brussels, Belgium.
