Museum of Costume by Alice Hawkins

Created to accompany the MoMu Gallery’s exhibition Dreamsuits, photographer and filmmaker Alice Hawkins lends her unique eye to Cohn’s equally unique couture creations, capturing their glittering surfaces on a fashion film for Drawing outfits from the personal collection of iconic Belgian entertainer Bobbejaan Schoepen and his wife Josée, and featuring Bobbejaan’s country-and-western music as soundtrack, Hawkin’s film is inspired by the idea of Cohn’s work crossing the line between costume and art. For Museum of Costume Hawkins brings Schoepen’s collection to life on a selection of Nudie Cohn enthusiasts – from Elvis impersonators to musicians, club entrepreneurs and even the photographer herself – immortalising the Rodeo tailor’s greatest hits.
