Ethnic costumes 2010/2011

Ethnic costumes by Anissa Aouar

Until June 9th MoMu Gallery presents the ethnic costumes of the 3rd year students of the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Third year students are required to present a collection of eight silhouettes by the end of the year. This collection must be based on a preliminary study of an ethnic culture. This study leads to surprising discoveries, which, combined with the student’s own experiences gives rise to an original collection.

The recreation of a typical costume or dress is seen as a necessary period of contemplation before commencing to design the collection. Using the ethnic costume and resources as a reference, the colours, fabrics, patterns, techniques, accessories and styling are developed and realized. In the third year students are expected to push their work to new heights to create a visionary collection that really highlights the students’ personality, creativity, skills, direction and passion.

With work by Sol Alonso, Anissa Aouar, Wali Barrech, Wim Bruynooghe, Marius Janusaukas, Kenta Kodaira, Claire Michel, Youwie Ng, Tabitha Osler, Rey Pador, Charlotte Pringels, Pierre Renaux and Linda Wiesner.
