WHO MADE MY DRESS
The mission of Rembo Styling is to inspire brides worldwide and to help to provide them with an unforgettable day.
A Rembo Styling wedding dress bears the mark of unique craftsmanship; your dress is designed with passion in Belgium and made with lots of love by our highly skilled seamstresses in our own atelier in Portugal.
We only produce on demand to keep our ecological footprint limited because we care about you and our planet!
Rembo Styling is a Belgian family business that has specialized for decades in the design and production of high-quality wedding dresses.
The Portuguese workshop is the heart and soul of the company and acts as a well-oiled machine. Because Rembo Styling has this expertise in their own hands, it’s able to respond quickly to new demands from the market and to make magic happen. Especially in challenging times, we go the extra mile for our brides.
The creative team is led by Chiara De Vlieger, the 4th generation of the company.

Rembo Styling stands for sophisticated, daring, and cheerful.
The contemporary bride realizes there is no planet B. She wants a sustainable dress, locally produced and made from responsible materials.µ
Rembo Styling answers this question with a sustainable capsule within the collection. Our goal is to do better every season and to make a larger part of the collection sustainable. A lot of attention goes to the search for the right materials.
We found beautiful materials such as bamboo, Belgian hemp, cupro viscose and recycled polyester. Sustainable can also be fashionable!

Since its beginnings Dries Van Noten has presented collections for women and men for Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter each year. He
celebrated his 50th fashion show in 2004 and 100th fashion show in 2017.
In June 2008, the Council of Fashion Designers of America honoured Dries Van Noten with its International

Q&A with dries van noten
When did you know that designing clothes was your path & passion?
There was a certain logic to my choice as my family had been involved in fashion and the garment business for generations. My father created one of Belgium’s most innovative retailers of ‘Pret-a-Porter’ and my grandfather was a tailor. I inherited my love of garment making, its traditions and rituals, from these men and my mother. Family immersed me in the craft and skill of fabrics, impassioned me with the power of flair and style for women and men that fired my quest to explore and question the subjectivity of “beauty” and the role it would play in my life. My family was very supportive and encouraged me to continue its fashion tradition. I regularly accompanied my parents to Paris and Milan on their many buying trips for collections. Though they had imagined I might take over the retail business, that I was passionate to become a fashion designer came as a great surprise to them.
What is your design signature?
I see a garment as a singular item of excellence that is part of a larger story told, firstly, within a designer’s vision for a collection and ultimately as part of the final wearer’s expression of their style through their wardrobe. My joy is to create a garment that fuses and balances beauty, craft and function, a garment that can perform well and continue in time to become part of life’s story. I enjoy juggling with colours, textures and light in a way that evokes rather than provokes.
Where do you come up with your best ideas?
The spark of inspiration for the narrative a collection rarely ever comes in the same way. The initial idea can sometimes come quickly and remain constant throughout the design process… occur on a walk in my garden, encountering a painting or the life and work of an artist. It can be something rarefied or ordinary, for example, suddenly looking at something that has surrounded me every day and seeing it in a different way that inspires. It can be a photograph in a book or a magazine, a re-read passage in a loved book, a conversation with friends or my design team or a piece of music. For other collections the story is more of a journey, deliberate, considered, and evolves through time and the design process. Anything can be that spark that ignites the creative process. What I have learned is that one recognises the spark when it happens, it may not be too planned, be ‘of its time’ and is more emotional than cerebral.
Is there a difference between style and fashion?
Of course, style comes from within..
What colour or fabric would you never use?
None actually! Often, challenging myself to work with colours, fabrics, or forms that I have disliked and bringing them into a collection can be an important aspect of the creative process.
What is beauty?
The idea of beauty is supremely subjective and very personal. Time also plays a role when our view on what is beautiful to us evolves. A flower, a building or a garment can be a thing of wonder for one while leaving another completely indifferent. What was beautiful to us even recently may be ugly today. Luckily, all designers have their own eye on and language of beauty.
What is ugliness?
It resonates in the same way as beauty for me. It is exciting when the formerly ugly becomes beautiful.

Cédric JacquemynCédric Jacquemyn
One of the 2010 alumni of the Antwerp Academy, fashion designer Cedric Jacquemyn has developed his darkly romantic menswear aesthetic into a ready-to-wear business. Cedric’s work is defined by a sensitive touch – sculpting natural fibres into slim, flowing garments imbued with historical, ethnic and mythical significance.
Cedric carries on a continuing artistic dialogue with the photographer Yves de Brabander, who’s lens captures the brand’s visual identity in arresting natural and manmade landscapes…
Showing off his skills as a sartorial tailor, Cedric Jacquemyn’s collection starts at the root of cloth and construction; by taking perfect cuts with great fabrics and combining these into meticulous fits.
Rites of passage references are seen through the evolutionary nature of some of the styles. Long, architectural silhouettes are a dominant force and are paired with leather boots. Each layer is pulled back and provides the eye to view something new and interesting. It is the beautiful and delicate balance of knitwear and leather that makes Jacquemyn’s collection shine.

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.

Klaar DevilléKlaar Devillé
Design and craftsmanship can perfectly stand together. If you work with natural materials you can combine them perfectly. Even more so: Belgian designers excel at it. The luxurious line of bags by Klaar Devillé fits perfectly within this spirit.
Bringing a new brand onto the market that stands for affordable high quality and authenticity is not an easy task. Unless you know perfectly well why.
The desire for purity, fierce elegance, quality, comfort, wearability, durability, and above all honesty, made Klaar take the step towards her own timeless and minimalistic high-end collection handmade bags.
Klaar Devillé comes from a large, artistic family of musicians, artists, and theatre-makers. Art, architecture, ballet, and theatre are what inspire her.
Klaar studied Slavic Languages and Eastern European Studies at the KULeuven and worked for several years as an analyst Eastern Europe for the Belgian State Security. When Klaar was part of a foreign security service recruitment progam in 2004, she decided to quit her job and return to her old love, fashion.
Klaar decided to study fashion design in Antwerp and maroquinerie (leatherworks) in Brussels and founded Atelier Devillé a few years later together with her husband.
Klaar is a mother of 3 and sister of award-winning theater author and director Stijn Devillé.
