What to expect? Antwerp Fashion Festival
Like every year, September is a big month in fashion. Vogue’s September issue, fashion weeks and the arrival of the new collections in stores. Since 3 years, you can also add the Antwerp Fashion Festival (AFF) to that impressive list.
For 2 days, the forever-cool-city of Antwerp will be flooded with fashion-curious people who can indulge in their common love for clothes, music and entertainment. The AFF kicks off at Friday with an exciting fashion show. The mayhem will then continue on Saturday. Stores will be open till 22h and treat you with various kind of fun. And when you hop from shop to shop, you will encounter street parties, pop-up stores, photo booths,…. I’m for one am particularly looking forward to design my own T-shirt at the Live silk screen printing event. After which I will spoil my sweat-tooth at the chocolate tasting and discover new flavors of my favorite candy.
But if you are tempted to buy a particularly cute dress, but you don’t know if it’s completely your vice? Or do you need to go to an event and still in need for the perfect outfit? AFF will also provide you with a personal shopping experience. These Sherlock Holmes’s of the Antwerp shopping scene will show you the hidden gems.
And why waiting to flaunt that brand new ensemble, when you can party all night long in one of the grooviest nightclubs in town? AFF will close the event with a fabulous after party at Club Magic, where you can mingle with your fellow fashion friends.
If you want to find out more about this event, you can always visit the websitehttp://antwerpfashionfestival.com, and find out which shops will participate and where to go too. I will tell you all about my shopping conquest from the night in my next blog.
For now, I can only advise you to dress up, go out there, and honor the fashion city of Antwerp in the best possible way!
