KOMONO et the Royal Academy of Antwerp

KOMONO announces partnership with the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

 

 

KOMONO is proud to announce its official partnership with the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. For centuries, Antwerp has been the home to innovative fashion: from intricate lace to the game-changing Antwerp Six. Today, Antwerp remains a key city within the global fashion scene with the Royal Academy as the main incubator for new talent and innovative design. KOMONO has spawned from this hub of creativity and aesthetics, and brings the essence of Antwerp to the world.

 

KOMONO will work together with a selected number of master students in the creation of a capsule eyewear collection linked to the students’ personal work. KOMONO’s mission is to aid the students’ exploration of innovative forms, their search for new colour combinations and their pursue for the original treatment of materials – and this related to the eyewear category. Workshops, given by KOMONO’s designers and product developers, will develop the students’ skills in 3D drawing/printing, tech sheets, material knowledge and manufacturing. The students will be given complete transparency and accountability as they will be involved from blank page to finished product.

About the Royal Academy of Antwerp

Founded in 1963, the Fashion Department at the Antwerp Academy emphasises the development of an artistic and innovative fingerprint. Students will be encouraged to work with new forms, original remakes of materials and alternative, creative processes. As a soon-to-be fashion designer, students are challenged with new and unexpected experiences.

In the early 1980s the rise of the Antwerp Six – along with Martin Margiela – brought the Fashion Department international fame and recognition. Since 2006, and until today, the Fashion Department of Antwerp continues to produce countless of talented conceptual designers under the guidance of Walter Van Beirendonck, one of the members of the Antwerp Six. Graduates from the Academy include Demna Gvasalia, Kris Van Assche, Haider Ackermann, Peter Pilotto, among others.
