Essentiel – AntwerpEssentiel – Antwerp Contact: Esfan Eghtessadi Inge Onsea
Essentiel Antwerp stands for refreshing, offbeat & luxurious fashion, renowned for its graphic or floral prints and trendy mixes of color. The rich and unique collections are designed to provoke an emotional response.
STEP INTO OUR WORLD WHERE IMAGINATION AND BEAUTY REIGN, WHERE LACK OF ORDER CREATES A SPACE FOR SURPRISE.
The Antwerp-based brand is influenced by the numerous life experiences of its founders Esfan Eghtessadi and Inge Onsea. Esfan, the son of Nicole Cadine, grew up in a world of textiles, sketches and fashion collections. Inge had a vintage loving mother, was a fashion model and spent five years in India, where she fell in love with colors, prints and unexpected combinations.
TO BE YOUR
In 1999 Esfan and Inge took a chance and launched a T-shirt collection. Four styles, twenty different colors: their response to the monochrome fashion landscape. After a year, the first store opened in Antwerp. Four seasons later, knitwear, jackets, dresses, shirts, and trousers in trendy colors, new materials, and an entire range of accessories were added. Essentiel Antwerp grew into a global brand with a powerful message of love, fun, and colorful surprises. A universal message that translates anywhere and everywhere in the world.
WE CONSIDER OUR ACCESSORIES AS THE CHILLI PEPPERS IN OUR ALREADY TASTY DISH.
LIFE LOOKS BETTER IN COLOR: STAY CURIOUS AND ORIGINAL TO KEEP THINGS SURPRISING AND CELEBRATE LIFE.

Garderobe plusGarderobe plus Contact: Peggy-Marie Bracke
Clothes are inevitable. They are nothing less than the furniture of the mind made visible.
Garderobe+ is a fashion agency in Antwerp and is run by Peggy-Marie Bracke. Our offer consists of small labels, some of which are Belgian and many of them eco-friendly. What they all have in common is the fact that they are made with love and an eye for craftsmanship. Each label tells its own story and seemingly coincidentally fits in with the others. A symbiosis naturally arises between the different collections, based on their individuality, purity and passion.
Ever since I was a kid I used to look at the world wide-eyed and soak up everything like a sponge. That hasn’t changed. Whether drawing, photography, furniture design, architecture, music or fashion: they all touch my senses. Because you have to live with your heart.
I have been in sales for fifteen years, of which twelve years with the same company. I started as a saleswoman and worked my way up to manager. After meeting a designer in 2006, I decided to quit this job and become self-employed.
Wardrobe+ was born. But I wanted a different approach than the other agencies. One that is not purely based on short-term cooperation, but on a sustainable, honest relationship of trust. Not a one-night stand, but a solid relationship.
When I was still buying collections myself, I was always amazed at how little the representatives thought about. In many cases it was only about writing large orders. So I don’t work with minimum orders. After all, as a retailer you know your budget like no other. Moreover, you only sell the products that you support yourself. In this way we create a win-win situation together. That’s how I want to work in this industry and that’s how I want to get the best out of it for you, for myself and for my designers.

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.
