Raf Simons, Glenn Martens and More to Speak at the 2019 Fashion Talks

For the fourth time, Flanders DC is hosting Fashion Talks in Antwerp. In the past few years, the conference already saw an impressive number of big names in fashion, such as designer Dries Van Noten, street style photographer Tommy Ton, New York Times fashion journalist Vanessa Friedman, designer Tim Coppens and many more. This year, the list of names is mind-blowingly good as well.

Fashion talks is a conference that is organized by Flanders DC, every two years. As the fashion industry is fast-paced and ever evolving, Fashion Talks is made to come together and talk about the state of the industry. This year’s edition will take place on the 21st of November in Antwerp.

On- and offstage

Each time, Flanders DC puts together a sharp programme on- and offstage. You can either sit back and listen to the key speakers on the big stage, like Raf Simons who will discuss the current state of fashion with fashion journalist, author and critic Alexander Fury. But there’s also the opportunity to participate in some talks, break-out sessions and networking opportunities. At the end of the night, there will be the third annual Belgian Fashion Award ceremony.
