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,
It’s been very busy lately, so that’s the reason why it took so long for me to post another article on my blog. But it was worth waiting because I have something really great to share with you guys. Last tuesday, I went to the Fashion Museum of Hasselt to check out their new exhibition “MODA Made in Italy”.
Italy is the place to be for many fashion lovers and has a great history of fashion! And what is a better place to show this wonderful history then the Fashion Museum of Hasselt! They did a great job bringing the warm and cozy Italian atmosphere to the museum thanks to the great scenography of Massimo Pignanelli (MASS architects) in combination with the refined Italian pieces of clothing! I really enjoyed this exhibition that tells the story of the Italian fashion industry, from the birth of fabrics to L’atra moda.
So make sure you visit the “MODA Made in Italy” exhibition. You can visit the exhibition till saturday the 9th of february. Also don’t forget to like their Facebook page to stay in touch about upcoming exhibitions in the future.
