LGF and I were invited to Show 2009 : the annual show presenting the work from all the students of the fashion department of Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts. You know, it’s that little school that spawned (a.o.) Walter Van Beirendonck, Martin Margiela, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene and a lot of other incredibly talented designers…

Last show we shot with this little camera. We’ll be fully lensed in a couple of days.

Beautiful evening in Antwerp.

After the show (which went amazingly smooth and those models had to workworkwork) we were allowed to take a look backstage. I love backstages when they’re all abandoned.
