This month I have started an internship at MoMu. For those who are from Antwerp need no introduction about MoMu. For those who aren’t, MoMu is the Fashion Museum in Antwerp. Although I work there only one day a week, I cannot stress how much fun it is to be writing excerpts for their blog and to be browsing through their fashion archive which consists 100year and + old books and magazines!
MoMu is now preparing a new expo called Silks & Prints from the Abraham Archive. COUTURE IN COLOUR (13.03 > 11.08.2013).
“During the 1950s and 1960s, the couturiers Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Cristóbal Balenciaga all worked together with the Swiss firm, Abraham, for their exclusive fabrics. This company was specialized in printing silks. Today, the Abraham archives, an impressive collection of sample books, couture photographs and textiles, are housed at the Swiss National Museum in Zurich. (MoMu, 2013)”
If you like fashion, fabric and prints, then this expo is right up your alley!
