| Great, creative fashion from a small country
Surreal, avant-garde, and explicit are three keywords that are usually associated with Belgian fashion, which is internationally recognized. This exhibition catalogue provides a unique historic overview of the DNA of Belgian fashion, starting with the legendary Antwerp Six—including Dries V an Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck, and Ann Demeulemeester—and working up to the individualist creations of Martin Margiela, A.F. Vandevorst, and Raf Simons. The volume also highlights the works of several influential players in various fashion and art disciplines. It will also touch upon the importance of the fashion academies, especially the Antwerp Royal Academyof Fine Arts and La Cambre in Brussels. The publication would not be complete without emerging talents such as Jean-Paul Lespagnard and Christian Wijnants.Exhibition: BOZAR, Brussels, 11.6.–13.9.2015
