Alber Elbaz, Marine Serre and More to Judge in Antwerp Fashion Academy Show

It’s almost time for the annual graduation show of the infamous Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. On the 7th and 8th of June, fashion students will show their collection in front of a crowd of industry insiders and fashion enthusiasts. But more importantly, they will show it to a jury that is going to judge the master collections.

This year’s jury is quite impressive. Alber Elbaz, who is the former creative director of Lanvin and a legend in the fashion industry, is just one of the big names. Another new name on the list is the Antwerp-based Kate Housh, who is undoubtedly Belgium’s most interesting and upcoming celebrity stylist and creative of the moment. We love that the academy is including young talent into the mix!
