Ann Demeulemeester

Founded in 1985 and part of the iconic Antwerp Six - graduates of Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the 1980s who defined a new wave of European fashion - Ann Demeulemeester's Victorian-inspired vision has been at the forefront of avant-garde clothing for over 30 years. The brand is currently helmed by creative director, Sebastien Meaner. Exploring the “poetic balance” of shadow and light and strength and sensitivity, the label is famed for languid silhouettes and masculine detailing.
