The Antwerp Six

The Antwerp Six refers to an important group of deconstructionist fashion designers graduating from Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts between 1980-1981. They shared a radical vision that established Antwerp as a notable location for fashion design. The breakthrough occurred in 1988 as the group rented a truck and set out for London fashion week with respective collections.

Together these designers successfully bring the power of the fashion system into question on all levels from design to consumer good. Their influence is not in the commercial sector like power designers but rather in the creative realm where they have empowered many young designers.
