Today, Fashion Club 70 is one of the most renowned fashion distributors in Europe. Representing more than 70 high end brands to more than 1700 boutiques over the entire Benelux area. The qualified and motivated staff still carries the core company values at heart; loyalty, personal service and building long term relationships with both clients and manufacturers. The company also invested in retail activities for brands such as Liu Jo, 7 For All Mankind, Red Valentino, Elisabetta Franchi, Philipp Plein and Just Cavalli, resulting in over 14 monobrand stores.
The headquarters are located in Antwerp, housing various specialized sales teams, a press office, a professional customer service department, an in-house IT team, a corporate restaurant and a surface covering 15.000 square meters, over a total of 3 buildings.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, the same goes for Fashion Club 70.
Founder Luc Dheedene started with a few square meters at the Brussels based Trade Mart, selling German brands for a Dutch agent. One day, he fell in love with the Italian collections, featured in ‘L’Uomo Vogue’ and decided to leave for Vicenza, Italy, in search of his first contract. This led to collaborations with Ferré, Moschino & Versace.
As the company became more successful, with more designers trusting their brands in Fashion Club 70 hands, the need for more space grew and resulted in the move to Antwerp. A wise decision, as Fashion Club 70 caters to Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg and was now located at the center of all three countries. This strategic move enabled the company to evolve and expand by the season.
Nevertheless, Fashion Club 70 is and will always remain a family based company, with clear goals towards the future. Luc Dheedene has shared his knowledge with his two sons, Miguel and Gregory, securing the company’s future that is already so bright.
