Antwerp: Tanguy Ottomer
Antwerp is arguably the edgiest fashion hub in Europe—its local Royal Academy of Fine Arts still churns out experimental designers keen on aping the success of past luminaries such as the Antwerp Six and Martin Margiela. Tanguy Ottomer can wrangle access to some of the city’s more rarefied ateliers, as well as steer shoppers through its passel of funky concept stores. “You’ve already seen London, Paris or Milan,” he says with a shrug. “Antwerp has this fresh feeling.” Rates start at $135 an hour; 32-3/336-01-81; tanguyottomer.com.
