Press days in Antwerp

Press days in Antwerp

Last Wednesday and Thursday were hectic days for journalists, influencers and bloggers. Every year press agencies open their doors for us, this way we can discover the new collections of the brands they represent. I went to a lot of different agencies and it was a battle against time… I thought I had a very good planning but when we arrived in Antwerp I realised I hadn’t really looked up how far the distance is between all these agencies. I figured out that we had been driving in circles all the time (haha this can only happen to me). But hey I managed to visit almost every agency. Todat I’ll tell you all about it.

#1 Media Mania

This was the first time I went to Media Mania so I didn’t really know what to expect. They have a wide range of different clients in all kinds of sectors: clothing, lingerie, sunglasses, food, jewelry, …  And that’s just a part of it. What I loved the most?

1: Furniture from La Redoute. The last couple of years I’ve been in love with this marble trend. And ofcourse, a lot of gold/ copper.

2:Miracles by Annelien Coorevits is one of the most beautiful Belgian jewelry brands. There was one of the bracelets from the collection in the goodiebag.

3:  Shoes from Reebok

#2 Comprendo, Appletree, Buro Coco and Media Texture

These press agencies combined their forces and came up with an amazing concept: secret garden press days.  And that’s where I imagined myself, in a secret garden. There were flowers everywhere and I loved how they set up everything. My favourites?

1: Self, my favourite skincare brand of all time. I fell in love with the packaging…. Pink is always a good idea. And when I first tried the nightcream, I fell in love with it all over again: the scent, the texture, everything about it is right. Natural Self

2: Babor has a travel kit full of essential products for holidays. I will take this one with me when I’m going on a holiday! Stay tuned for a review on the blog.


Xavies’: Looking for healthy breakfast ideas? I love granola but those you can find in supermarkets are not really my cup of tea. But Xavies’ is different. The taste is just amazing and there will be an entire post about it soon on the blog.

4: DHC deep cleansing oil


5: Rimmel

I took so many other great pictures, but unfortunately I can’t show them all in this post, but more will follow.

#3 De Showroom – Margot Feiner

The showroom is the place to be for great fashion brands. Margot gave me more information about all the different brands and she has a refined taste in fashion. I was impressed by the different brands: Nanushka, Humanoid, Rabens Saloner, NOUS and ILKECOP.

#4 Yapado

This was a great experience: Yapado organised press days in a house somewhere in Antwerp. Apparently you can rent this loft via for shooting, we could discover all the different rooms. In the bathroom two ladies gave me more information about the beauty brands such as Kneipp, Body Fantasies and all kinds of brands such as Salt & Pepper. I received a full goodiebag and will test everything, soon on the blog.

Body Fantasies









The bedroom was full of amazing decoration, they did a great job on that. In love with the copper clock and the amazing furniture.

#5 Global Image

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great that day but Global Image had a beautiful decorated table outside and Hentho gin, a gin from a gin company based in Antwerp. More pictures will follow.

Pressdays were amazing! Another post with other brands will follow.

Thanks to all the different agencies!
