From now on I’ll start making monthly ‘event calendars’. In these six months of Little Louvain I attended some amazing events and I want to share my experiences with you. A lot of people asked me the same question: how does my weekly schedule look like? Hectic. That’s the right word to use in this case. Combining the student life with blogging seems easy but it’s not. Blogging is a lot of work, there are those additional things such as events you have to attend (it’s fun of course :-))) Time to list the events I’ll attend in september. Stay tuned because I’ll be making vlogs that will appear on my youtube channel
Tutu Chic Defilé
(Thursday 8 sep)
As some of you might know Littlelouvain was featured in Thema Nieuws Magazine (hooray!) and somehow due to this article (don’t ask me the why or the how) I got an invitation for the Tutu chic Defilé. You might know Freya Poppe from the tv show ‘Pink Ambition’. I’m excited to see her collection. This young woman is a real entrepreneur and definitely knows what she wants.
(Wednesday 14 sep)
This came as a total surprise to me, well apparently I missed something. I’ve never heard of Uptown Design before but this year it’ll be the third edition which will take place from 15 September to 1 October 2016. The curator of Uptown Design, Kunty Moureau, will show us some exclusive designer’s creations. There is something new this edition: guided tours on reservation. Discover the 19 locations and 20 designers over here
Fashion Museum Antwerp X Rik Wouters & the private utopia
(Wednesday 21 sep)
A while ago I attended the blogger event @Momu Antwerp (fashion museum). You can read about it over here. ‘Game changers’ was an amazing exhibition and I learned so much about Balenciaga and other designers who tried to ‘free’ women and give them more space in clothing. 21 september I’ll be attending their latest blogger event about Rik Wouters & the Private Utopia. I’m very curious because I’ve never seen work from Rik Wouters before.
“The theme of enchanting homeliness by painter Rik Wouters, as well as the intimate feeling of sanctity between him and his wife Nel, forms the premise of this exhibition.In our region, Wouters was the only artist to combine Post-Impressionist painting techniques with simple domestic scenes. His expressive brush strokes and the unfinished style of his canvases give a dynamic to his work that, combined with the emphasis on lighting and colour, result in an enchanting and optimistic quality.”
