You are invited to the grand opening of Serge de Troyer Home. Serge de Troyer, Belgium born ex-model,Â Â hasÂ modeled around the world for Versace, Valentino, Cividini, Vivienne Westwood and Tommy Hilfiger. He understands cutting edge fashion, and brings a refined sense of style to his craft as a furniture designer. He has lived in the US since 1998, when, on a visit to Manhattan, for a photo shoot for Versace in ultra-hip Interview Magazine, he made the decision to pursue his own creative passion. He now lives in Miami where he simultaneously maintains growing Interior Design and furniture design businesses. Schooled in the rigorous 7-year Interior Design curriculum at the prestigious art academy of Sint Laurentius in Lokeren, he was steeped in a tradition stressing the priority of the craft of plastic arts, the manipulation of media as productive expression, as opposed to simply pure aesthetic theory. This gave him a deep appreciation of the mechanical properties and limits of raw materials. Meanwhile, his travels as an A list model during the 1990’s took him around the world, allowing him to indulge his love for architecture and culture.
