• Artez Graduation collection: Fabiola

    The young Fabiola – the former Belgian queen – was the muse for this collection. To be more specific; Fabiola in 1958, when she attended the World Fair in Brussels, Belgium. Her way of dressing was characteristic for the Belgian bourgeoisie; neat collars, sober colors, skirts just above the knee, lots of embroidery, jewels, big hair and luxurious materials. But as she falls in love with Dutch culture, her wardrobe gradually changes… With this collection, Ann Boogaerts won Lichting 2009, supported by G-Star during Amsterdam Fashion week. She won a cash prize of 10 000 euros and an internship at G-Star Raw during New York Fashion Week 2010. © Ann Boogaerts, 2009.
