It’s been announced that fashion original Ann Demeulemeester will be departing her label. As a young member of the Antwerp Six of the 1980s, she brought her viewpoint into play with her vision, once saying that she felt she must push herself to keep creating something new within her defining style. With this effort, she made her name in the world and brought her ideals before the eyes of millions. In an industry where some great talents understandably find it easier to work from their own established templates to keep rapidly serving the hungry mouth of the endless show season cycle within marketing formula edicts, the Belgian-born designer kept things fresh with a world eye. We look forward to seeing what she does next.
Words do this to us. They feed us even before we see. They build expectations. They are things too. And they lead us to see other things in a certain way. Words activated like and paired with the visual are the message.
