High school art students open second hand clothing shop in Antwerp

A new second-hand clothes shop opened on the Eilandje in the north of the city of Antwerp, Belgium on Friday November 24. The store, entitled ‘Kwik Shop’ is operated by pupils of secondary education institution Kunstkaai and they also completely furnished the shop themselves, as per Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws (HLN).

The project was launched by seventh year students of the Design & Expo+ programme (the decor and window display course) at the Kunstkaai secondary art school.

The students transformed the old office buildings of Antwerp’s dock workers into the Kwik Shop. You will find second-hand clothes, accessories and limited edition own designs that are affordable for everyone.
