Belgian fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester found success soon after completing her studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 1981. A year after her graduation, she won the Gouden Spoel, a prize awarded each year to the most promising young fashion designer. She made her debut on the international scene in 1986, with a show in London, alongside five other young Belgians collectively christened The Antwerp Six. Five years later, Demeulemeester began showing at Paris Fashion Week adding a menswear line in 2005 and jewellery in 2006. Demeulemeester's clothes are sold in 200 shops worldwide.
