^MoMu on Nationalestraat. it's the fashion & costume museum that adjoined with the FFI department above....known wholly as the 'modenatie'.

there's actually a splendid outdoor café just down the street from the museum,just across the way from the cathedral.

i don't know how you feel about vegetarian cuisine but there's a great little bistro on lombardenvest called lombardia. it's frequented by many of the designers and i lived at this place when i did eat out. had the best veggie soup and frothy ginger drink(it was winter,for me)..

Actually, from this year on the stocksale of Demeulemeester and Ackermann is no longer at the populierenlaan (the private home of Ann!) but in an industry parc nearby: Oudebaan 55, Wilrijk, Antwerp.

I know because I was at Anns house when an assistent arrived and gave us the directions to go there

Regarding the sales: The mens selection of ann was tiny, and mostly big sizes; RA13 was chaos because mens and womens was mixed, as well as all the designers; Bruno pieters had lots more items then usual, because he wants to get rid of his archive (He came in just when I was there, and he'll be re-starting his label soon, in an ecological way). Prices were lower as the previous time also

How do you people actually travel to Antwerp for the sales? There don't seem to be any flights to Antwerp itself, so do you fly to Brussels and take the train from there? I would really love to go this year (in April) because it sounds like the designer stock sales and the shopping in general are awesome in Antwerp.

Also, to those who have been to the Ann D./Haider Ackermann sale: Is there lots of stuff in small sizes, mainly of the Ackermann pieces? I have a store close to me that sells Haider Ackermann womenswear but I don't think I've ever seen anything in FR32-36 and most of the stock that's online on Antonioli and LVR is FR38 and upwards so I'm not sure if the smaller sizes are somwhat of a rarity with HA? I'd be bummed if I travelled so far and ended up not getting anything because everything's huge on me.

^^We have a small airport in Deurne, but It's not a big airport, only small airplanes can land there. It's easy to go from Brussel to Antwerp. You have busses and trains. If you take the train, the endstation to antwerp is "Antwerpen Centraal".

About the sizes, no idea...

I hope you will enjoy your stay in Antwerp

Thank you so much for your reply, silvi!
Taking a direct flight is usually less expensive, that's why I asked, but I love travelling by train and I think if I can go I will get an InterRail card and check out some other places in Belgium as well

Louis Antwerp-
2 Lombardenstraat

Ann Demeulemeester-
38 Verlastraat

Anna Heylen-
16 Lombardenstraat(just before you hit nationalestraat and it's next door to APC....i recommend everybody visit her space if just to see her multitudes of handmade dolls that pervade the entire shop....and her clothes are divine...wonderful sense of craftsmanship and texture)

Stephan Schneider-
53 Reynderstraat(like anna heylen,one of the most underrated talents residing in antwerp....it's a small space but it's so beautiful.....and his work is simple but deliriously good.)

also there's the new concept store
RA-
13 Kloosterstraat

also if you happen to take a side trip to ghent,at this very moment a.f. vandevorst is holding their 3rd edition of their travelling guerilla store called 'aktion'. it's in the 'Brabantdam' section of the city.
