This event has already taken place.


Conversation between Annemie Verbeke, stylist and director of the Maison Annemie Verbeke and Anne-Françoise Moyson, journalist at Le Vif Weekend.


What topics were discussed during the conference “Annemie and her muses”?


For Annemie Verbeke, fashion is first and foremost a contemporary process.


Annemie documents her approach. She reads and composes mood boards (collages). She associates colours and sketches silhouettes, inspired by a wish for concision and passion – a truly physical and mental task -.  During a collection, she imagines a fictitious encounter. A pause in the past. Shining a light on a topic.


In short, a second life.


Annemie Verbeke’s muses and models are remarkable women:

  • Charlotte Perriand
  • Francesca Woodman
  • Françoise Sagan
  • Nina Simone
  • Valentina
  • Nancy Cunard
  • Georgia O’Keeffe


The conference Annemie and her muses was held in Brussels on Thursday 23 October 2014.
