Exhibition Rik Wouters @ Momu 17.09.16 > 26.2.17

A while ago I went to  the “Game Changers” exhibition @ the fashion museum in Antwerp, I had a great time and learned about Balenciaga and other well-known designers who wanted to ‘free’ women and give them more space in clothing.  I was of course pretty excited when I received an invitation for the latest exhibition: ” Rik Wouters & The Private Utopia”.  Momu partnered up with the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Rik Wouters this year. The result is a gathering of work by Rik Wouters and items by fashion designers/ artists.  Read on…

1 day in Leuven – De Langste Dag

In one of my previous posts I talked about De Langste Dag which took place in Leuven today. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t that great but that is normal in Belgium, we never know what to expect. 🙂  My sister had some spare time in the morning so we decided to go to this event. Despite the bad weather it was still a nice day! 31 years ago ‘De Langste Dag’ was created  to unify several small street markets.
