Fashion Antwerp Walking Tour
Antwerp is a shoppers’ paradise!
The tour begins 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. The story continues. These six pioneers paved the road for generations to follow. Veronique Branquinho, Bruno Pieters, Christophe Broich, …influential names with important sales points in this trendy fashionable city.
The Antwerp Modenatie with the Fashion Academy and the Fashion Museum MOMU is the heart of the actual fashion scene. But neighbouring streets also breathe fashion. The Kammenstraat with classics such as Fish and Chips and Fans, big denim brands like Adidas, Diesel, G-Star and Pepe and prominent trendsetters like Heaven’s Playground by Gsus and All Saints. From the wonderfully kitsch Vegas to the timeless Stills, all styles gathered in one street.
The Schuttershofstraat brings us a different style. Here we can indulge the luxury brought to us by Gucci, Hermes, Lagerfeld en Chanel, … Also quite unique is the neighbourhood of De Wilde Zee with names like Supertrash, Scotch&Soda, and other stories.
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.
This tour includes a visit to the Formum of the Fashion museum (depends on current exhibition).
The tour runs from Tuesday to Saturday.
