Designer Christian Wijnants graduated from the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp in 2000 and went on to establish his own label in 2003. He is part of a younger generation of Belgian designers known for its sophisticated use of materials, for which he often receives awards, such as in 2013 with the International Woolmark Prize.

MoMu collects silhouettes of this young vanguard of Belgian designers and chose this silhouette for the MoMu Now expo for its exceptional sculptural materials and quilted fabrics reminiscent of 18th-century indoor garments.
