Happy Birthday Dear Academie! – 12 renowned designers, all graduates of the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, chose an iconic piece from their archive. The Fashion Museum of Antwerp invited photographer Ronald Stoops, make-up artist Inge Grognard and designer Dirk Van Saene to interpret these garments in a styling with printed bodysuits which refer to the signature of the designers.
