Flanders House and Flanders Fashion Institute are teaming up to give Flemish and Belgian talent an opportunity to show their creations in New York during Fashion week. From Feb. 15-19, Showroom Antwerp will host a selection of top talent — some about to show their first collections, others already established — at Flanders House, located in The New York Times Building on 8th Avenue. In all, seven men’s and women’s designers will exhibit their work, including Anke Loh, Anna Heylen, Idriz Jossa, Lenny Leleu, Marc Philippe Coudeyre, Peter Ceursters, Stephan Schneider and photographer Flore Zoé. In addition, Antwerp’s World Diamond Centre will unveil seven diamond jewelry designs from the HRD Awards 2009. The event kicks off with a brunch reception on Feb. 15 from 1-5 pm.
