Pitti Discovery presents

Walter Van Beirendonck

A fashion show

Museum Stibbert's garden

The special guest at this edition of Pitti Uomo is the Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck.
Walter Van Beirendonck, who was trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, is the most eccentric of the Antwerp Six – the six designers who, starting in the 1990s have made the city into a world fashion capital. On Thursday evening, 19 June in Florence, he will present the absolute première of his 2009 S/S menswear collection during a performance-event where his unmistakable style played the starring role. It is the very first time that the Belgian designer brings his collection on a catwalk in Italy.
