Antwerp Six


The Antwerp Six is a group of influential avant garde fashion designers who graduated from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts between 1980-1981. The fashion collective presented a distinct, radical vision for fashion during the 1980s that established Antwerp as a notable location for fashion design. The breakthrough occurred in 1986 as the group rented a truck and set out for the London Fashion Fair with their collections. Members of the Antwerp six joined the fashion department to share stories and experiences. Here are some photos from our luncheon.
