Christian Wijnants is an Antwerp-based fashion designer. And I'm super crazy in love with his recent collection. Knit inspired by melting snow and magical dresses by hiking tours?! Uh yeah, that's how I like it 'fashion loves nature'. Check out the whole collection and fall in love with this genius. And by the way he the last-year Winner of the European Woolmark Prize, so you better watch out for him.

Born in Brussels, Christian moved to Antwerp in 1996 to study fashion design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. His graduate collection won the Christine Mathijs prize for best collection from Dries Van Noten in 2000. After graduation, Christian presented his collection at the prestigious Festival d'Hyères, where it was awarded the Grand Prix and picked up by stores including Colette (Paris), Henri Bendel (New York), Pineal Eye (London), and Via Bus Stop (Tokyo). After working with Van Noten in Antwerp and Angelo Tarlazzi in Paris, Christian launched his own label in 2003. (Biography via Christian's homepage)
