MoMu presents Walter Van Beirendonck - Dream the world awake

This fall the Antwerp Fashion Museum (MoMu) will present the first large-scale retrospective exhibition of the work of fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck. Over three decades, Van Beirendonck has built up an impressive international career. He is the maverick of the Antwerp fashion scene and became primarily known for his colourful designs, his spectacular fashion shows in Paris in the 90's under the W.&L.T. label, and the critical messages on society he proclaims in his designs. His work combines the most diverse sources of inspiration, ranging from technology, art and pop culture to ethnography. The exhibition will start on September 14, 2011 and will run until February 19, 2012. Here's the link to MoMu's website:
