Birds of Paradise!

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.

Much love,

xoxo

Keep an eye on Tom!

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!
