BRAND OVERVIEW: BERNHARD WILLHELM

February 17, 2008 BY CAPSULESNEWS

01.jpgEver innovative, designer Bernhard Willhelm trained with our favorite avant-garde designers. He has created a fantastically beautiful and completely-off-the-wall universe. In 1998, after graduating from the Royal Academy of Antwerp, he  assisted Walter Van Beirendonck, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Dirk Bikkembergs. In September 2002, he settled in Paris. Bernhard Willhelm started with womenswear, a collection that premiered at the Paris fashion shows in March 1999. He created his first samples for menswear in October 2000, which he wouldn't showcase until January 2003 at Menswear Fashion Week. He recently  launched his first shoe line, and created the “White Wild Bunch”, a clothing line only available online at YOOX.com. He also received the ANDAM Grand Prize as the most promising talent of the new creative scene. His fall 08 collection is active / dance inspired, and modelled by real dancers. We've got pics after the jump.
