Fardoe Design

Evolution. The Antwerp Six. Revolution.


The book presents the evolution of fashion through three stages. What happened before The Antwerp Six, what did these do and the revolution they created thereafter in fashion being an influence for designers today.

As The Antwerp Six consists of six designers, other six were chosen to portray Evolution and six more to portray Revolution. The separation of the three stages is done through the guidance in reading, changing layout and different fonts. The stages of Evolution and Revolution are layouts created vertically in opposite orientations and The Antwerp Six is in a horizontal layout. This leads having two covers to convey the concept of “revolution”, which means “to turn around”, and with this opposed layout system, you have to flip the book.
