Celebrating the talent of fashion maverick Walter Van Beirendonck, in May 2011 Nick Knight from SHOWstudio and stylist Simon Foxton immortalised the finest pieces from his archive in photography and fashion film, which is showcased in the Walter Van Beirendonck – Dream The World Awake exhibition in the MoMu and also included as a retrospective editorial in A/W2011 GQ Style.

The result is a monolithic photographic frieze of 64 metres in the exhibition alongside a unique fashion film created during the shoot, showcasing fourty-one outfits plucked by Simon Foxton and Van Beirendonck himself from his thirty-years of work and play.
