1957 Born in Antwrep (BE)

Since his early collections, Walter has been inspired for his designs by art, music and literature, all mixed with ethnic and nature influences.

Walter Van Beirendonck is considered to be one of the main trend-setters in men's fashion by the professional press.
His designs are very recognisable by either strong graphics or innovating cuts and unexpected colour combinations .
The red thread throughout his collections is his sense of humour, sex with an eye-wink and his concern about 'safe sex'.

His continous statements about the fashion-world,earth,nature, contempary life and society are collected in prints and slogans.
Often 'double bottomed'! Always in a complete unconventional context.
Since 1983 carries every collection a well-defined name.

since 1985 is Walter teaching in the fashion-department from the Royal Academy of Arts-Antwerp/Belgium

1993 - 1999 designer of W.&L.T./Wild and Lethal Trash
- Designing costumes for theater, ballet and film, curating expositions, designing objects, think-thank for commercial projects and products,image-making for pop-groups ,illustrating books, designing commercial collections...

1998 opened Walter Van Beirendonck ,'Walter' , a multilabel store, with annex the 'window'-gallery, St.Antoniusstraat 12 - Antwerp/Belgium
