Post-Couture Antwerp

Post-Couture Antwerp.

This month is an exciting month for me, besides launching the Makersleeve Kickstarter we're presenting a new Post-Couture collection! Over the past year I've worked together with 5 designers that joined the Collective: Sofie Nieuwborg, Emmanuel Ryngaert, Sofie Gaudaen, Kjell de Meersman and Marie-Sophie Beinke.

I'd like to invite you to be present at the launch, which happens at Paris Texas Gallery in Antwerp this Thursday. Join us for a beer and a chat and discover the new materials, connectors and garments that we created!

A timeless colour palette, carefully selected materials and innovative design are reflected in all garments. The recognisable assembly technique that is lasercut into the fabric form is another theme in the collection, both esthetically and conceptually. All items of the Post-Couture Antwerp collection can be downloaded as digital design files, with which users can go to a local Makerspace to create their own garments. 

Kjell de Meersman, Sofie Gaudaen, Emmanuel Ryngaert, Sofie Nieuwborg & Marie-Sophie Beinke.

From the 20th until the 30th of October the Post-Couture Antwerp collection can be viewed in Gallery PARIS TEXAS in Antwerp. At the festive opening on the 20th all five Antwerp designers will be present. During the pop-up all garments can be created on-demand and assembled while you wait.

20 October     19.00 - 22.00 uur
21-23 October     11.00 - 18.00 uur
