1997 Dirk Bikkembergs Steel Heel Lace Boots
Dirk Bikkembergs was notable for being a part of the “Antwerp 6”, a group of fashion students all graduating from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts. This group includes Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, and Honorary member Martin Margiela. They minus Margiela set out with a rented truck of their collections and rocked London Fashion week and the rest is history. They still all meetup and keep in touch today.
