If you love Belgian designers such as Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann, A.F. Vandevorst, Bruno Pieters, and Stephan Schneider, you might want to get yourself some plane tickets and a few days off October 19th through 22nd. Belgian-obsessed blog Flemish Fashion Freaks have just released the full schedule of Belgian designer sample sales set to take place that long weekend—complete with dates, times, and locations. FFF writes:

From October 19th until the end of this month, many Antwerp-based designers sell their clothes ad accessories (often for women and men) and fabrics for very affordable prices, including one-off catwalk showpieces. Meanwhile people travel to Antwerp from all over the world for these stock sales and it’s also an important way for the designers to make room for their new collections, so everybody benefits. Don’t be selfish and please forward this list to your network of fashion lovers too- make a nice day or weekend out of it together!
Check out their full list here or after the jump. Right now Hipmunk is listing round-trip coach airfares from New York to Brussels at around $1,424 for those dates, but you can always fly to London or Paris and take the Eurostar to Antwerp. If you go, send us photos of your haul!
