Antwerp breathes fashion, it is the home of the world famous Antwerp Six and the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts. In the city of the Scheldt, you can stroll through the cosy streets and neighbourhoods where ready-to-wear and high street go hand in hand. Less visible is the huge fashion industry with designers and every possible supporting function. Fashion is also business in Antwerp. Therefore, we are delighted to welcome the 4th edition of a significant event like Fashion Talks in Antwerp.

Bernadette is a luxury ready-to-wear label based in Antwerp by mother and daughter Bernadette and Charlotte De Geyter. Their collections are defined by easy-to-wear silk dresses and refreshing prints, designed exclusively in-house. A love for nature and the arts are leitmotifs that run through Bernadette’s aesthetic. Ultrafeminine, metropolitan glamour is juxtaposed with a poetic vision of a life somewhere remote and paradisal. Clean lines add a graceful note to the label's sober silhouettes while colourful floral prints echo a timeless and free-spirited allure.
Bernadette will be dressing our Fashion Talks 2019 host.
