Ann Demeulemeester.

Ann Demeulemeester was trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, graduating in 1981. After several years designing freelance, she founded her label in 1985 and showed her first collection in Paris in 1992. With close links to poetry, art, and Patti Smith (frequently cited as a muse), Demeulemeester’s clothing draws on gothic and punk styling and imbues a subtle air of sensuality.

After running her fashion house completely independently for almost 30 years, Ann Demeulemeester made the decision to depart from fashion in late 2013, leaving her in-house design team to carry on her legacy.
