Antoine is known for his A SWEATER FOR THE WORLD! project; a 2-person sweater with the goal to photograph as many ‘different kinds of people’ as possible inside itself. These big series of pictures with a weird fun collection of people shows ONE world with different kind of styles, ages, points of view, values, religions and imagination. The sweater is sportive, elegant, sexy, playfull, humorous, wearable AND spectacle at the same time. It stands for playing with proportions, pragmatism, creativity, a smile, togetherness and my dream to design at an international level.
Antoine also initiates and participates in projects like the concept direction, design and realisation of dance(costumes) i.c.w. Positive Sensations, dressed actress Hadewych Minis for Nadine the movie i.c.w. DFF, created the KILLING FASHION installation/collection for the Dutch Fashion Biennale and is guest teacher at the Arnhem Academy of Art and Design.
