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.
Soundtracks we spotted : Sigur Ros (about 5 times), The Knife, Fever Ray, Emiliana Torrini, Justin Timberlake, La Roux, Aphex Twin (Rubber Johnny), Bob Dylan (Hurricane), The Kinks (All Day And All Of The Night) Joy Division (Still), Grace Jones (NightClubbing Remix), Eleanor Rigby (Beatles, Fake Soulwax Remix)
Above : Mysterious Wonderland by Emilie Pirlot. In our top 3.
Above : Elise Gettliffe - great jumpsuits
Above : Our favourite collection : "It's Four O' Clock" by Karisia Paponi
Another one of our favourites was by "Metropolis" by Juan Hernandez Daels

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.
Representing in my Walter Van Beirendonck shirt.
That was fun. Thanks David & Walter!
There's another show tonight and on Saturday.
