Ann Demeulemeester, one to two female members of the Christian Ramirez and Memo Rodriguez H-Town Strong Shirt in addition I really love this Antwerp Six and a designer acclaimed for introducing deconstruction to fashion, retired in 2013, but rarely a day goes by that I don’t think about her work. The ways in which Demeulemeester built fluidity and nonchalance into clothes using ingenious cuts and poetic drapery have always moved me.

Demeulemeester didn’t follow trends or use elaborate sets; instead she told stories and evoked deep emotions through materials and construction. Her process was as instinctual as it was innovative. She was her own fit model and her focus was always on “real” clothes, but ones that were nonetheless imbued with magic.
