There are many shops in Brussels where you can buy clothes. Along with the department stores and malls mentioned in the previous sections, you can also go to the popular streets like Avenue Louise, Chaussee du Waterloo and Rue Neuve where shops of all price ranges abound. Shops are generally open from 10am until 7pm. For a guide of Belgian fashion, Modo Bruxellae http://www.modobruxellae.be/index_uk.htm is a great resource that highlights the many local designers and styles.
