Antwerp is (one of) the city(s) of fashion. Think about Dirk Bikkembergs, Ann Demeulemeester, Walter Van Beirendonck, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene and Marina Yee. They are called “the Antwerp six” and they made Antwerp the fashion city it is today. A fashion museum therefore sounds logic and should not be skipped if you come visit. If you are not interested in fashion though, at least check out the amazing architecture of this building at the entrance.
I find the fashion museum always very inspiring. Fashion itself is not really my cup of tea to be honest, but the way the collections are presented is always very entertaining and interesting. If you plan your visit upfront (visit their website for all planning), you might even get your kids involved in a workshop for half a day or even a full day. This way, even your kids return inspired from a visit! Extra activities for children are organised during school holidays.
Don’t forget to visit the museum book shop Copyright after you visit. You will find interesting books about fashion, architecture and photography.
Hot tip: Search for the “Fashion in Antwerp” app to follow a fashion route to complete your visit to the fashion museum.
