Perhaps,we shoud find some articles on the "Six"...together or individual profiles and such.

I'd like to see if anybody can dig up some info on Marina Yee....she's rarely mentioned in the same bated breath as the other's and is often confused with Margiela as being part of the group,which he wasn't,of course. Hmmm....let's see I'll give a few tidbits about her.

I know she's got two lines--one called M.Y. Workshop(which is her most recent label)and a line for curvier women called Lena Lena. I saw some of her Lena Lena stuff,and it looks really good. She's based in Brussels. She also collaborates each year with final year students at Royal Academy for a t'shirt design project called "Fashion for Van Dyck".

i have to say scott, as well as others that you've really educated me...i literally knew nothing of the fashion coming out of here...i still do not know that much--but it's been enjoyable learning about it so far

Out the Antwerp Six Anne Demuelmeester is my favorite with Walter Van Beirendonck as a close second.


Belgians in general, I am partial to Bernhard Willhelm, Haider Ackermann, and Raf Simons

2 books
These are two excellent books on 'belgian' fashion (if such thing exists ) from a couple of years ago. Both should still be available on amazon. The first one is the most comprehensive and concentrates on the 'first' generation; the second one only covers six of the new kids on the block (well, new at the time of publication! Veronique / X Delcour / Vandevorst etc...).

And that Raf pic on the first one still makes me drool !
