About A.F. Vandevorst
A.F. Vandevorst is a Belgian label created in 1997 by the couple Filip Arickx and An Vandevorst.
In 1987, both An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx met on their first day as students at Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Instantly they felt like they matched, both on a personal and a creative level.
After graduating, An Vandevorst went to work for Maison Martin Margiela and became the first assistant of Dries Van Noten later on. Filip Arickx completed his obligatory military service, worked as a freelance stylist afterwards and went to work for Dirk Bikkembergs.
Vandevorst and Arickx united in 1997 to create their label A.F. Vandevorst.
The A.F. Vandevorst aesthetic is marked by a combination of feminine draping and strong masculine tailoring. Filip and An look for inspiration to military and nurse uniforms, lingerie and fetish subculture. Appropriately, their footwear line, launched in 2003, is called Fetish.
Sadly, they discontinued their brand with their last collection being spring 2020.
