In Antwerp great events always turn out into even greater events. First we had Laundry Day, the national holiday of Kammenstraat. Now, 10 years later, Laundry Day is a huge festival with at least 100 dance artists from all over the world. Now that took place last weekend.
This weekend we’ll see another event that is becoming bigger and bigger: what started with one Antwerp Fashion Night has now become a real Antwerp Fashion FESTIVAL!
AFF will take place on Friday and Saturday and will end with an afterparty in Magic (invitation only). Almost every store in Antwerp will participate and will stay open later. And you cannot only shop longer but also cheaper because the shops will lure you with great discounts! Noa Noa gives you 5%, BeOriginal 10% and Cos gives you even 20%! Every shop has its own planning. There will be a lot of music: in Fish&Chips you can show your own DJ-skills and Public Image invites DJs LVRZ and Haunted VIP. Many presents will be coming your way as well. What do you think about free feather extensions at Jutka & Riska? Or maybe you’re more into a free shopping bag from Zadig & Voltaire? So even when you don’t buy anything at all, you will not go home empty-handed.
Shopping is not the only thing on the programme of AFF. The AFF team has organised great fashion workshops and fun activities. For example:
° Friday from 5 pm untill 10 pm you can participate in the Instacontest. Make pictures with the Instagram app (hashtag #Antwerpfashionfestival) of everything you like during AFF.
° Feeling thirsty? Go to the pop-up champagne bar at komedieplaats!
° With the workshop Latest Fashion Trends you can discover the new trends for winter 2014.
° Blogger Elien from Dogs & Dresses organises a Bloggers Closet Sale.
So you see, there is no excuse not to come. You HAVE to go! Still not convinced? Lara, Tine and I will be there too and yes, of course we will have our cameras with us.
Be fashionable and see you then!
