Belgian fashion brands are attracting more and more followers. And for good reason! What makes Belgian fashion stand out? We lift the curtain to introduce you to the essential Belgian clothing brands of the moment!
Belgian fashion: an international reputation
Belgians are not chauvinists. However, we can be proud of our national fashion brands, considered to be avant-garde and visionary in every part of the world.
We owe much of this success to the “Antwerp Six”, six graduates of the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, fashion section, who broke onto the international scene in the mid-1980s: Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Marina Yee, Walter Van Beirendonck and Dirk Van Saene.
"They propelled Belgian fashion onto the world stage, trailing the Academy of fashion in their wake. Since then, it has attracted the brightest students from all over the world. "
But the Antwerp Fashion Department is not the only one with a worldwide reputation. The fashion department of the Ecole national supérieure des arts visuels in Brussels, better known as La Cambre, also produces some big names every year. The two schools regularly appear in the top 10 best fashion schools in the world, in prestigious rankings such as that of the British website Business of Fashion.
3 reasons to buy Belgian fashion brands for your webshop or clothing store
More and more customers are deliberately turning to Belgian fashion brands. There are several reasons for this choice.
Belgian fashion is first and foremost famous for its immense creativity and its eccentric side. Each Belgian clothing brand has a character of its own. A Belgian piece will therefore allow your customers to create a personal style with an impact.
Belgian fashion brands are, moreover, a guarantee of quality and durability. Your customers are guaranteed clothing pieces that they can continue to wear for years. At the same time, they contribute to the fight against climate change.
Finally, buying Belgian brands boosts the local Belgian economy. Many customers have become increasingly aware of this message in recent years.
It can therefore be a good idea to clearly indicate which clothes in your collection are “Made in Belgium”.
