LGF and I were invited to watch Show 2010, the graduation show of the Antwerp Fashion Academy front row. Impressive...
I think we all know Show 2009 was going to be a tough one to follow, what with alumni such as a.o. Elise Gettliffe and Emily Pirlot who got kicked into world fame when Gaga and Beyoncé sported two of her looks in their "Telephone" video.
We were extremely entertained and saw some great work.
Terumasa Nakajima "Mesdames Aux Camelias". Stunning lace pieces (3rd year)
Who was first? The academy's Head Master and his oversized headphones or Judith Thomas ("Kind, zieh dich warm an" 4th year) and her big ear muffs?
The collection above was in our Top 3 : "Cynthia" by Lars Paschke (4th Year)
LGF and I want to see Michael Kampe's "Exploded View" denim in stores next season. Could somebody make that happen please?
Crustations as headgear in Mariel Manuel's "Keep Your Eye On The Doughnut" (4th year)
I'm already looking forward to next year.
There’s another show tonight and on Saturday.
