Excursions for accompanying personsThursday, 2 June 2016 - Visit of Antwerp : Fashion & Rubens
09.00 - 17.00
This walk is a cultural exploration of Antwerp as a vibrant lifestyle city that takes you past contemporary design, architecture and history icons. During this tour you will stop at shops, buildings and other places that were instrumental in the development of Antwerp as an international trend-setting fashion centre. If Belgium equates beer and chocolate, Antwerp (in addition) stands for fashion.
FashionAntwerp is a shoppers' paradise. The fashionwalk, combining the history of fashion with great shopping addresses, is a must for all fashionistas. In the 1980's, six young talented fashion designers conquered the international fashion scene. The “Antwerp Six” were born: Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene and Marina Yee. The Antwerp Modenatie with the Fashion Academy and the Fashion Museum MOMU is the heart of today's fashion scene. Window shopping from classy boutiques with designer-collections to trendy shops with eye-catching silhouettes and pioneers in the “vintage” circuit, we follow the creative and fascinating trail of Antwerp fashion.
RubensAntwerp was home to Peter Paul Rubens, Belgium's most influential artist in the early 17th century. Museums and Churches around the city display some of his most famous paintings such as The Descent from the Cross (1612). One of Antwerp's most prized possessions is the artist's home, which also served as a studio where Rubens taught and worked. The Rubens House is still a very fine evocation of 17th century reality.
The artist's home enables visitors to discover Rubens' multifaceted talent: the painter, architect and diplomat, the collector and scientist, the husband and father.
