Fashion Graduate #5  Charlotte De Geyter Pittoors

Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

World top fashion is made in Antwerp. Discover new, wayward design talents. Here's Charlotte's 2016 graduation process at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp: How to Catch a Fish.

“We catch the fish faster than they procreate,” I once read in an article. That made me start contemplating. People always want too much too fast. What can still make you happy? In my case it's the purity and tranquility of nature.

‘How To Catch a Fish?’ may be a new carpe diem.

Drawing is my most precious activity and it is always the starting point of my design process.

Going back to the basics of clothing, this is one example showing that theme.

The graduation expo is open to jury and public. It shows the end result of four years at the academy.

The years of study at the academy are an intense journey during which not only craftmanship but also personality and collaboration can grow.

It started with the 'simple' drawing of a flower, a fascination with nature, a personal observation. And study.

Great about studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts is that it stimulates collaboration with others. It brings different worlds together. It can make possible what I could not have done just on my own.

The yearly fashion show organised by the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts is a renowned tradition in Antwerp ... and the world.

The show is the ultimate moment for graduates. The world of fashion is watching Antwerp and its newest design talents.

A wealth of opportunities is ahead. All's open. And as of now, the public will be Charlotte De Geyter Pittoors' jury.
