Founder and creative director of Arte Antwerp

Bertony Da Silva

We are happy to announce our first on-stage speaker: founder and creative director of streetwear label Arte Antwerp, Bertony Da Silva. This local hero will appear for the first time on a main stage stage at Fashion Talks!

In 2009 an experimental capsule T-shirt collection that unified different art forms into garments emerged as Arte Antwerp's first creation, shaping the distinctly hybridized vision from day one. Arte Antwerp matured into a cultivated creative house, proving its relevance by translating artistic and timely concepts into ready-to-wear collections.

The directional aesthetic of Bertony Da Silva unveils a deep-rooted background in graphic design and an exploration of different art forms, ranging from modern architecture to music. Arte Antwerp is guided by a strong emphasis on the exchange of concepts and ideas, at once reflecting and engaging the creative landscape.
