Join us for the expo of the etnical costumes of the 3rd BA at F.R.E.D. Antwerp!


In collaboration with F.R.E.D. we are proud to present the etnical costumes of our 3rd BA students. Third year students are required to present a collection of eight silhouettes by the end of the year. This collection must be based on a preliminary study of an ethnic culture. This study leads to surprising discoveries, which, combined with the student’s own experiences gives rise to an original collection.

The recreation of a typical costume or dress is seen as a necessary period of contemplation before commencing to design the collection. Using the ethnic costume and resources as a reference, the colours, fabrics, patterns, techniques, accessories and styling are developed and realized. In the third year students are expected to push their work to new heights to create a visionary collection that really highlights the students’ personality, creativity, skills, direction and passion.
