Rival fashion schools La Cambre in Brussels and The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp join forces to support solidarity in Belgium after the terrorist attacks in Brussels earlier this year. Their slogan #StopTerrorisingOurWorld is the guiding force behind the Show16 event.
Show16 will take place on June 3rd at Royal Saint Marie 22A in Brussels, Belgium, and acts as the purest example of how art can influence life.
Van Beirendonck, head of the fashion department at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts was the influencer behind Show16’s slogan as it appeared in his Fall/Winter 2015 collection. When asked about his role in Show16 he responded by saying, “As head of the Fashion Department, I am very connected to Antwerp. At first the request seemed a bit strange but immediately afterwards, I realised the power of such a statement should both schools send out the same message”.
