Antwerp Six

The Antwerp Six refers to a group of fashion designers who graduated from Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts between 1980-1981.[1] The six artists studied under Linda Loppa who now serves as the dean of Polimoda fashion school.[2] The fashion collective presented a distinct, radical vision for fashion during the 1980s that established Antwerp as a notable location for fashion design. The breakthrough occurred in 1986 as the group rented a truck and set out for the London Fashion Week tradefair with their collections. Martin Margiela, another Belgian contemporary, was not actually part of the group that showed in London, although he is often mistakenly described as one of the Antwerp Six; he had moved to Paris, where he worked initially for Jean Paul Gaultier.
