Belgium has got some fashion talent and we're not afraid to show it!
For the first time Flanders and Wallonia decided to join forces during Paris Fashion Week.
Flanders Fashion Institute (FFI) and Wallonie-Bruxelles Design/Mode (WBDM) collaborated together to show the world a new group of Belgian talent.
From 1st to 5th october fifteen different designers will present their collections to the media and buyers in Les Belges showroom in Paris.
I think this is a wonderful opportunity for young talent to get discovered and make good connections abroad.
I wish them all good luck on their journey!
Here's a small selection of my favorite designers:
Izumi Hongo has just finished her education at the Fashion Academy of Antwerp.
With her collection "Private Painting" she won the Sacha Shoe Award 2010.
She'll launch her own line named " Van Hongo" this october.
The Duo Boris Schipper and Tomas Pedrosa Arques, or just Schipper/Arques
Nostalgic and feminine lingerie and accessories by Céline Pinckers
Funky shirts by a sister duo Filles a papa
