Hi lovely people,
Yesterday I had the chance to discover the new exhibition in the Fashion Museum of Antwerp with a few fellow bloggers. We had a great evening, talking to each other and taking a look at this wonderful exhibition for the first time.
The exhibition “Birds of Paradise” is an ode to the plumes and feathers in fashion. Plumes and feathers have always been a sign of beauty and preciousness. Like by princesses and queens to express their femininity by using feathered folding fans when going to a ball.
For designers, it’s always been interesting to use the feather as a sign of freedom and lightness. Thierry Mugler used these feathers to create his own “bird woman”, a silhouette with the form of a butterfly.
Alexander McQueen is also one of the designers whose work is shown at the exhibition. With his own interpretation of the swan Lake, a design based on the duality between the white, good, swan and the black, bad, swan!
I was impressed by the different silhouettes and the lovely scenography of the exhibition by Bob Verhelst. I also want to thank Belmodo and MoMu Antwerp for this lovely evening.
It’s still possible to visit the exhibition till the 24th of August.
Hi lovely people,
I was spending another day behind my books today. But after a few exams now I’m really looking forward to spend some days in the sun without stress and a lot of fun! Apart from these thoughts, I want to show this great talent from Belgium to you all! Because what can make a person more happy in these dark days then a lovely fashion-post !
Let me introduce you to Tom Van Der Borght! I discovered this wonderful talent on the Fashionclash2013 blogger day. Tom lives and works in Ghent. He is a fashion designer and a graduate of the Stedelijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten at Sint Niklaas. He flawlessly combines modern technology, like digital knitting, with traditional handicrafts. I was immediately impressed by the great colors and awesome prints he used! They are a true stimulation for your senses. Here are some pictures I selected from his latest APONYCALYPSE AW 13/14 collection. The colorfull knitted sweaters are one of my favorites! I’m also a big fan of the video he made for this collection. I don’t think these pictures need further explanation, so watch and enjoy!
