A.F.VANDEVORST is a Belgian fashion brand, based in Antwerp.
Designers An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx met in 1987 on their first day of school at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Ten years later, they set up their company Blixa and presented their first collection as A.F.VANDEVORST in Paris.
The designer duo is known for their many collaborations, unique installations and artistic pursuits. From Biennale-installations to traveling guerrilla stores, their work has been critically acclaimed around the world. In line with their artistic focus and dedication to craftsmanship, A.F.VANDEVORST is proud to show their work during Haute Couture in Paris.
The flagship store – designed together with the Antwerp-based scenographer Bob Verhelst – is based in the heart of Antwerp. Not only did it become a personal statement about the essence of the brand, it also creates a space to welcome costumers into the A.F.VANDEVORST universe.
For 2018, A.F.VANDEVORST is working on a retrospective exhibition and book, illustrating the brand’s 20 successful years in fashion.
