Antwerp Academy Fashion Department 2024 Show - Avant Gardist

Antwerp Academy Fashion Department 2024 Show


The fashion academy in Antwerp stands as one of the most esteemed institutions globally, renowned for nurturing unconventional and artistic designers. From the famous Antwerp Six to Martin Margiela, this academy has been a cradle for some of the most influential institutions in the fashion world. The impact of this institution goes beyond borders, with its graduates juxtaposed with esteemed Asian designers like Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo.

Yearly, the Fashion Department hosts an end-of-year presentation show that draws attention from students, industry professionals, and the public alike. This event serves as a platform to showcase the work of young, talented designers whose innovative creations are poised to shape the industry's landscape in the near future. Recent events have seen fashion student collections strutting down the catwalk, alongside awe-inspiring showcases by master's students in a striking jury installation accessible to all.

The upcoming 2024 show under new Artistic Director Brandon Wen heralds a fresh era filled with curiosity and hunger for creativity. The atmosphere buzzes with a palpable desire for more, evident in the intricate, passionately crafted works, bold silhouettes, and impactful designs on display.

Continuing the tradition set in the previous year, the 'offSHOW 2024' aims to spotlight select alumni. Notable names like Alise Anna Dzirniece, Florentina Leitner, RE Antwerp (led by Tim Van Steenbergen), and NONSTOP WORLDWIDE (by Yentsé) presented their installations at the esteemed Office Baroque Gallery.
