Fashion Goddess [Wednesday Inspirations]

ann demeulemeester

To me one of the most sensational fashion designers has to be Ann Demeulemeester. She was born in Belgium in 1959 and became an important part of an avant-garde movement called Antwerp-Six, a group of young Belgian designers who left to London to showcase their collections. Their clothing lines captured many styles the fashion world in those days wasn’t yet familiar with. Only a year after she graduated Ann also got the Gouden Spoel award which is given to the most promising young fashion designer of the year.
Her first collection was shown in one of the art galleries in Paris and her newest collections are still mainly showcased at the Paris Fashion Week every year.

I find Ann’s work very interesting in many ways. First of all she never copies herself again. She’s a hard-working woman in a world where it isn’t always so easy to renew yourself. She lives and breathes designing. The way she mixtures the materials and makes the details is just outstanding. Ann Demeulemeester has said that she doesn’t design for men and women, she designs for people. Now try to keep breathing while watching her amazing work throughout these years.
