Duurzame mode & lifestyle bij De Nieuwe Natie

Duurzame mode is hot op dit moment! Ikzelf steun ook liever lokale winkels en vind de grote ketens eigenlijk maar niets. Belgische mode is helemaal mijn ding! Toch moet ik zeggen dat duurzame mode vaak het woord ‘saai’ opgeplakt krijgt. Deze week mocht ik aanwezig zijn tijdens een event bij De Nieuwe Natie. Moest je niet weten wat dit concept juist inhoudt, ik leg je het uit. De Nieuwe Natie geeft creatieve ondernemers de kans om hun werk te tonen in de Stadsfeestzaal van Antwerpen. Eigenlijk kan je het vergelijken met een pop-up winkel waar ondernemers voor een bepaalde periode een eigen hoekje…

The pre-opening of Mercado

Mercado, the famous food hall in Antwerp and the first food market in Belgium, is opening its doors again after a Summer break. This weekend is the big Opening Festival and I (together with other people) was invited to the pre-opening which took place yesterday. It was a great evening full of nice food and different cultures. I did explore different tastes which I’m telling you all about in this post.    Mercado is located in the old post office at Groenplaats number 43. The facade is impressive, my expectations were rather high. When entering the building I was really impressed. The amazing…

Meet Pascaud Beauty Innovations

Last Thursday I was invited to the opening of Pascaud beauty institute in Antwerp. Mardge Pascaud is the lady behind Pascaud beauty innovations. She started her search for the perfect balance between inner and outer beauty when she was 19 years old. The philosophy behind this brand can be defined as the beauty triangle: inside out beauty, outside in beauty and zen beauty. These 3 aspects have to be in balance. She knew it’s not possible to only treat your skin, the other 2 aspects are as important. She decided to go studying again (skin therapy and cosmetic chemistry) and developed her own range of products.…

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…
