The fashion museum in Antwerp is organizing an amazing exhibition this year. I am talking about ‘Game Changers – Reinventing the 20th century silhouette’. This exhibition takes a look at the work of fashion designer Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895-1972) .
The game changers are the pioneers of haute couture (1920 & 1930) and the designers of 1980-90 who looked at fashion from a new perspective. Balenciaga created a new silhouette. Along with those pioneers, Balenciaga created an alternative for the ‘hourglass silhouette’.
I am very happy that I received an invitation for the blogger evening.
“The exhibition unites 100 unique couture and ready-to-wear silhouets by Cristóbal Balenciaga, Paul Poiret, Madeleine Vionnet, Gabrielle Chanel, but also Issey Miyake, Ann Demeulemeester, Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, Maison Martin Margiela.”
