Meg,I think it's because,like I said,they've got a great balance and also alot of nuance. I mean,they don't alienate people. They can do some incredible experimental pieces which is attractive to one and they can do some really easy things. All in one collection. And quite consistenly,at that. I think Belgians are realistic. They don't have the lofty,archetypical fashion ambitions to be a mere establishment. They're honest and genuine in what they do.
Of course,you're point being that it's generally associated with Belgians...there are others,for sure,in other cities but I don't think it has the collective strength as Antwerp does. Seeing as maybe 98% of the designers in that lone city have a similar approach in being integral and focusing purely on the work they do. And of course,one has to remember Antwerp is small...London,Paris and NY is so tremendous with the fashion world they often overlook their great talents.
