Belgian designer Wim Bruynooghe graduated from the Fashion Department of the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Encouraged by the Belgian press, Wim founded his eponymous brand in 2013 with his partner Laur Dillen Storms. With a full speed ahead approach, the brand opened an Antwerp guerilla flagship store in 2015.
In January 2016 Wim was featured on Forbes' '30 Under 30' list for European entrepreneurs. That same year he was named artistic director of UCWHY, a label founded by Anne Chapelle, founder and CEO of BVBA 32.
Distilling sports influences while creating an homage to the work of the great 20th Century couturiers, the name Wim Bruynooghe has become synonymous with an outspoken sense of elegance.
