Brussels Fashion Months

In October and November, Belgian talent will take centre stage in the ‘we are fashion campaign’ launched by MAD Brussels with the support of visit.brussels. In Brussels, creativity is part of people’s way of life; it is inventive, even extravagant.

Brussels fashion is of high quality and rich in these qualities; and produces collections that stand the test of time. The architects of Brussels design continue to push the envelope of inventiveness by combining improbable substances and materials.

But the capital is much more than a crossroads for creative influences: Brussels can also be secretive and exclusive, shyly revealing the extent of its talents, but exporting them to the four corners of the world. October and November are the months to celebrate our own talent. The programme includes fashion shows, exhibitions, conferences, screenings, sales... a string of events where creativity takes centre stage.
