Designers from Antwerp

Today I got a book called Fashion Now 2, which is a selection of contemporary fashion from around the world, chosen from the people from I-D Magazine. Two of the really colourful standouts in the book are Dirk Van Saene, and Walter Van Beirendonck who are both designers from Antwerp. They are part of a group known as the Antwerp six, which you can read about here. I was interested to read that designers from Antwerp are a huge sucess in Japan, some of them exporting to the Japanese market only. Just when I thought I'd finally found an influence from a country other than Japan, I find out that theres a Japanese story attatched. I've really gotta go there ....... xxxx
