Ann Demeulemeester is a Belgian shoe, boot and fashion designer and a member of the "Antwerp 6", which refers to six Belgian fashion designers who made distinctive designs and first rose to popularity in the 1980s.
Ann Demeulemeester's footwear is distinctive and recogniseable, and it takes its influences from other fashion trends, past and present, including punk and gothic. Her fashion house remains independently owned, despite being approached to sell by major fashion houses.
Ann Demeulemeester shoes and boots are now sold in thirty countries across the globe.
