Proud to be Belgian

As a Belgian I am so proud when I see the designer talent this small country has contributed to the world of fashion. To name a few…

Raf Simons – He was a real innovator at Jil Sander and is highly respected in the industry. His last fashion show at Jil Sander was stunning. Where will he be going next… www.rafsimons.com

Dries van Noten – He silently acquired his spot in the fashion industry by doing his own thing. His prints in the SS2012 collection are very unique and different from what we have seen before. www.driesvannoten.be

Martin Margiela – He has maintained an extremely low profile (giving no face to the brand), but has many celebrity fans loving his avant-garde fashion. He left Maison Martin Margiela in 2009. www.maisonmartinmargiela.com

Olivier Thyskens – He put Nina Ricci back on the map (remember that awesome red dress Nicole Kidman wore?). And is now doing his thing for Theory. www.theyskenstheory.com
