NVU with Christian Wijnants in Antwerp and a chat about his career and his new shop

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I was a bit too early for the actual Christian Wijnants boutique opening but not to early to have a chat with Christian who I met when he was still in school in Antwerp. In fact he gave me and my friend Christophe Billet, who at that time was working with the buying office at JOYCE, a tour of Antwerp on my very first visit there. He talks about his thoughts, all good, on the WOOLMARK Prize and working with Swarovski crystals in a new technique with knits.
