In February 2012, during Paris Fashion Week, Glenn Martens launched his own womenswear line after years of building up experience at Jean Paul Gaultier and most recently at Honest by Bruno Pieters.
The lauch of his label can be called memorable because ever since he is mentioned in many magazines and publications.
This was not my first encounter with Glenn. We met in 2008 during Let's Play Fashion event in Gent where he showed his graduation collection. Glenn graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp in the same year.
Inspiration for his AW 12/13 collection comes from his hometown Bruges and the city's Gothic architecture. This is translated in constructive tailoring and impeccable details. Each piece is strong on its own. After seeing the collection online It was a great pleasure to see it with my own eyes and to encounter Glenn Martens again.
I am very much looking forward to his next collection that will be shown during SS2013 Paris Fashion Week.
