A.F. Vandevorst

Belgian couple An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx set up their company Blixa and launched their first collection as A.F. Vandevorst in Paris, 1998, after graduating the Fashion School of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. They launched a shoe collection in 2003 and three years later they had naturally progressed into a lingerie line. The pair is known for their dept contrasts in fabrics, textures, and colours, often layering silky lingerie-inspired pieces with tailored jackets, reworked white cotton button-downs, or dramatic capes. A.F. Vandevorst shows their collections twice a year during Paris Women’s Fashion Week and now sells their collections in partnership with some hundreds of boutiques across the world.
