So You Want To Be Schooled In Fashion… at The Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts

Royal Academy Of Fine Arts

Every so often, I’ll be posting some links to fashion schools that might pique your interests.

You can’t deny a school’s credibility when Vincent Van Gogh (yes the artist who mailed his serrated ear to his lover) studied at this 540 student school in Antwerp. But, its fashion department might do you in with powerhouse alumni Ann Demeulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Walter Van Beirendonck, Dirk Van Saene, Dries Van Noten and Martin Margiela and scores of budding designers whom you likely have heard of — Les Hommes/ Bart Van Den Bossche and Tom Notte, and Kris Van Assche. The Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts School schools a mere 130 fashion design students for a three year bachelor degree and one year masters program beginning with history of dresses, fashion design and tailoring/patterning in the first bachelor year, culminating in the masters program with a 12 piece collection — or what university seniors know as the thesis.

If you’re looking to apply to the selective program, you can find the website and application here.
