6+. ANTWERP FASHION
25 January 2007 - 23 June 2007 (De Loketten, Brussels)
6+, referring to ‘The Six of Antwerp’ (Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck, Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs and Marina Yee), describes the international success story of Antwerp fashion.
The plus sign in the title refers to Martin Margiela on the one hand, because he is often bracketed together with ‘The Six’ and on the other hand to the next generation of designers who have always added new aspects to the Antwerp identity.

Designer Bernhard Willhelm (1972, Ulm, Germany) graduated from the fashion department of the Antwerp Academy in 1998. In 2006, Bernhard Willhelm and Jutta Kraus donated their entire clothing archive to the ModeMuseum. This donation is the main impetus behind an exceptional retrospective.
