Interviews, reports, books: Veerle Windels (°1965) has been an enthusiastic journalist for more than twenty years. She always goes for the story behind the scenes. For the person behind the product. She launched her first book in 2001 (Young Belgian Fashion), compiled some of her best interviews with fashion designers in ‘Werken met Woorden’ (2009, Ludion) and wrote a monography on fashion designer Tim van Steenbergen (Ludion, 2010). As a freelance journalist she mainly writes for the Belgian quality daily De Standaard, but also for international publications such as Financieel Dagblad (Nl) and StyleZeitgeist (USA). She also teaches ‘Fashion. NOW’ at the fashion department of the KASK in Ghent.
