COVERAGE

Unlike most designers, Simons did not graduate with a fashion degree. Instead, he studied Industrial and Furniture Design at the LUCA School of Arts. It was during the fourth year that he sought an internship with one of the Antwerp Six, Walter Van Beirendonck. Simons did not do fashion work under his wing, instead of being tasked to design presentations, masks, and even perfume bottles for the designer. Walter Van Beirendock brought Simons to Paris, where they attended fashion presentations by Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, and Dirk van Saene. It was then that Simons saw Maison Martin Margiela’s Spring-Summer 1990 collection, a show that revolutionized the industry and kickstarted Simons’ fashion journey. Linda Loppa, then director of Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts, was the first person that Simons presented a collection to, of which she remarked, “I knew you wouldn’t need school.”, a stark acknowledgment of his abilities.
