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,
Fashion Museum Hasselt is getting ready for the “Axelle Red – fashion victim”-exhibition. They are working hard for the opening of the exhibition on the 24 of january. I’m really looking forward to take a look into the life of Axelle Red. She is such a beautiful woman with so much talent. She easily combines art, fashion and music into one. I think that’s the reason she deserves an exhibition dedicated to her.
It’s posible to visit Axelle Red’s expo from the 24 of january till the 2th of july.
Also don’t forget to like Fashion Museum Hasselt on facebook to stay in touch about upcomming exhibitions.
