ZONE 6 : THE FASHION DISTRICT
The Antwerp fashion scene is clustered in and around Nationalestraat and serves as a source of inspiration for the entire neighborhood. Antwerp is known worldwide for its fashion, partly due to the fashion designers who graduated from the Antwerp Academy of Arts. Some of their surprising collections and designs can be found in the shop windows of the more prestigious fashion and design stores dotted around the neighborhood. The ModeNatie at the corner of Nationalestraat and Drukkerijstraat is the creative fashion heart of Antwerp. The MoMu Fashion Museum, the world-renowned Fashion Academy and the Flanders Fashion Institute have all set up home here. Lombardenvest and Steenhouwersvest have also been integrated into the fashionable heart of Antwerp. Major international names as well as former Fashion Academy students are well represented in these streets. Kammenstraat features an eclectic mix of posh boutiques and street wear stores for a hip, trendy and young audience.
