MoMu is very happy with the review of the Walter Van Beirendonck – Dream the World Awake catalogue by New York Journal Books.

You can read the full review of Jeffrey Felner on the website of New York Journal Books, but here are a few excerpts:

“For those who are fashion devotees/historians, these are names that echo a swinging of the pendulum within the world of fashion. Mr. Van Beirendonck is a fashion intellectual but one with a great sense of humor. Walter Van Beirendonck: Dream the World Awake is a comprehensive and thorough study of his body of work since his start in the 1980s, lavishly filled with incredible photographs allowing you to enter this rarefied world.

“Just in case you are wondering why the price of this book is so extreme, you have only to hold it in your hands and feel the quality of the paper and see the fabulous clarity of its reproductions. This is a paean to one of the world’s lesser-known fashion designers, and Dream the World Awake is a book that should find itself in every supposedly au courant fashion library, for it reinforces—in a unique and sometimes demanding way—the concept that fashion is an art form.”
