KNOTORYUS At Show 2013 (Antwerp Fashion Academy) + Soundtrack

Devon Halfnight Leflufy

This weekend LGF and I had the honor for the 5th year in a row to be invited to SHOW 2013: the graduation show of the Antwerp Fashion Academy.

And it felt as if David Flamée, the wonderful press honcho new it was a celebration as he assigned our seats smack dab in front of my all-time hero Walter Van Beirendonck.

Now as much as I enjoyed being there and celebrating these young students, I missed the chills I got the previous years, when seeing several bachelor students with tremendous promise. I saw far too many references to teachers' and allumni collections (Manon and Niels, you are clearly not forgotten).

Having said that, KNOTORYUS favourites Minju Kim and Devon Halfnight Leflufy delivered and then some, and I thought Lise Eerens' presentation was THE shit.

OUR OTHER HIGHLIGHTS +KNOTORYUS/SHOW 2013 playlist

The above  picture means so much to me and I don't know why yet.

PLAYLIST: 25 TRACKS FROM THE ANTWERP FASHION ACADEMY : SHOW 2013

4 hours of runway music is too much for one mixtape, so we selected 25 tracks that stood out, got stuck or simply fit the mood of the night. Opening number was Max Richter, so we kept that, otherwise the sequence of the tracks is not related to the sequence shows: we tried to make it into a playlist you can enjoy on its own. Ranging from the obscure (Chinawoman) to the catwalk classics (Max Berlin), from the gloomy (Soap&Skin) to the silly (La Bionda/The Muppets), there's something here for everyone. Also: if you were there that night, we hope you'll be able to relive it here simply by pressing play.
