New Look Fashion DealNew Look Fashion Deal Contact: Alex Delafonteyne
New Look was founded in 1994 by Alex Delafonteyne, who had previously collaborations with Esther Ekstein and his brother Geert Delafonteyne. Initially the company was an agent for mainly British avant-garde collections such as John Richmond, Helen Storey and Liza Bruce. This attraction for top market British and American names remains a constant element in the offer of New Look.
Alex’ interest in arts, especially painting, literature and history, have been inspiring for the discovery and sale of several young designers, already before their commercial success. Helen Storey, Jan and Carlos, Marcel Marongui, John Richmond, Giles Rosier, Alessandro Dell’acqua to name just a few.
Through the years the company has had long lasting and successful collaborations with prestigious names such as Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Fendi, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Mac Queen, Helmut Lang, Jean Paul Gaultier a.o.
Long lasting and loyal relationships with solid and important companies such as Staff, Gibo’Co and SINV take an important place in the company. This makes of New Look a unique showroom in the Benelux, that tends not only to sell a product but also a certain vision on clothing with a sensibility for the fashion of tomorrow. The link with the commercial reality is however never far thanks to New Looks own experience in retail with “A la Mode” Antwerp.

BordoniBordoni Contact: Tommaso Bordoni
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS
Do not say “just a ’tailor-made’ suit” about a Bordoni suit. Tommaso makes it a point of honor to take care of the measurements himself. A ‘normal’ tailor takes about 12-22 sizes. No less than 44 measures are recorded for a Bordoni suit.
Perfection down to the last detail … Extra stitching, ‘secret’ pockets, your own name embroidered on the inside, perfect finishing and the highest quality materials. You should not expect any less.
BORDONI is a clothing brand which specializes in bespoke suits, shirts and shoes. Every piece we produce is custom made to the specific needs of the customer. You are the designer of your own life, why shouldn’t you be the designer of your own clothes?
To guarantee the highest quality we work by appointment only. You can either make an appointment in the comfort of your own living room or office, or we can meet you at our headquarters in Belgium.

Fashion CLub 70Fashion CLub 70 Contact: Luc Dheedene
Today, Fashion Club 70 is one of the most renowned fashion distributors in Europe. Representing more than 50 high-end brands to more than 1700 boutiques in the entire Benelux area. The qualified and motivated staff still carries the core company values at heart; loyalty, personal service and building long term relationships with both clients and manufacturers.
The headquarters are located in Antwerp, housing various specialised sales teams, a press office, a professional customer service department, an in-house IT team, a corporate restaurant and a surface covering 15.000 square meters, over a total of 3 buildings.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, the same goes for Fashion Club 70.
Founder Luc Dheedene started with a few square meters at the Brussels based Trade Mart selling German brands for a Dutch agent. One day, he fell in love with the Italian collections featured in ‘L’Uomo Vogue’ and decided to leave for Vicenza, Italy, in search of his first contract. This led to collaborations with Ferré, Moschino & Versace.
As the company became more successful, with more designers trusting their brands in Fashion Club 70’s hands, the need for more space grew and resulted in the move to Antwerp. A wise decision, as Fashion Club 70 caters to Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and was now located at the center of all three countries. This strategic move enabled the company to evolve and expand by the season.
Nevertheless, Fashion Club 70 is and always will be a family based company, with clear goals towards the future. Luc Dheedene has shared his knowledge with his two sons, Miguel and Gregory, securing the company’s future that is already so bright.
Since we’ve opened our doors in 1975 we’ve become masters of our trade. Our eye for quality and an eminent customer service makes for a loyal client base that continues to expand.
We never stop improving and will continue to expand our selection so we can serve the Benelux area as good as possible. Contact us today to find out what fashionclub70 can offer you.
