Antwerp is a shoppers’ paradise.Foto 032

Ok, there is the Meir, the busiest pedestrian shopping street in Belgium, but there’s more.

Carolien’s fashionwalk – modewandeling, combines the history of fashion with ‘nice to knows’ and ‘need to knows’ and great shopping addresses, in other words a must for all fashionistas.

Let’s begin with an exploration of (recent) fashion history. In the 80’s of the last century 6 young talented fashion designers conquered the international fashion scene. The “Antwerp Six” were born: Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene en Marina Yee.boon

The story continues. These six pioneers paved the road for next generations and the prestigious ‘title’ Antwerp Schooled opens all doors in the world of fashion.

The Antwerp Modenatie with the Fashion Academy and the Fashion Museum MOMU is the heart of the actual fashion scene.Louis

But neighbouring streets also breathe fashion. The Kammenstraat or Wilde Zee with edgy streetwear and denim, but also more feminine paterns and big labels. Stores like Façon Jacqmin, Louis, the wonderfully kitsch Vegas to modern We are Labels, all styles gathered in one street.

The Schuttershofstraat brings us a different style. Here we can indulge in luxury brought by Delvaux, Chanel, …

Antwerpen is also pioneering in vintage/sustainable fashion with the countries largest vintage store, T2, and other catchy inititatives. Tha fact that fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world is something that needs to be adressed, and we will on this tour.

Window shopping from classy boutiques with designer-collections to trendy shops with eye catching ready to wear silhouettes and pioneers in the “vintage”- circuit, we follow the creative and fascinating trail of Antwerp fashion.
