As one of the final events of its 125th anniversary year, De Conferentie organized a contest for fashion designers, to come up with a new design for the traditional attorney's robe ("Toga").
Entries were numerous and varied and to celebrate this, a prestigious fashion event complete was organized in the Antwerp Justice Palace.
One very special aspect : none of the persons walking the catwalk is a professional model
Instead they are all attorneys and members of the Bar (and one judge), who volunteered to show the designs. Most of them walk the catwalk for the first time in their life.
This gallery contains my report of the event and a few backstage impressions.
In a separate gallery, I have included the strobed portraits that I made in the hours prior to curtain: http://roelh.zenfolio.com/p808230698
