Katrin Wouters and Karen Hendrix welcomed us with some lovely drinks and took us back to the days when it all started. Did you know Katrin and Karen started around the same time as the Antwerp 6. Just like many other Belgian designers in the eighties, they took a quirky approach to fashion, incorporating humour and the unexpected in their brand and their designs This approach transformed Wouters & Hendrix from a two-woman team to a company with dedicated departments for each aspect of the business.

Next up was a tour of the atelier! It was incredible to see all the different specialists do very precise and intricate work. There were people specialist in gold, specialised in silver, people dedicated to making locks, etc. Jewellery is a little bit like haute couture, the designers relies on many different specialists to create one beautiful piece.

The visit was wonderful, we learned more about the designers and the brand, but also a lot about jewellery design. Thank you Wouters & Hendrix!
