Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet Abraham. Instead of traveling all the way to Zurich I had to chance to meet him in the Fashion Museum of Antwerp. For those who don’t know Abraham yet, Abraham is a Swiss company specialized in silks and the printing off silks.
Many couture houses were inspired by the different prints and beautiful colors of the different silks they produced through the years. Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Cristóbal Balenciaga worked together with the Swiss company for their wonderful and exclusive silks. You can see many silhouettes of these great couture houses, or how lovely fabric changes into a wonderful creation, during the exhibition.
Unfortunately the company had to close its doors in 2002, but thanks to this exhibition you can still feel the power and beauty of their exclusive fabrics. Its still possible to visit the exhibition till the 11nd of August, 2013. So make sure you check it out!
Lots of love
