With Balenciaga’s announcement of its appointing Demna Gvasalia as creative director, MoMu shows you a throwback photo of 2013’s Happy Birthday Dear Academie exhibition, with a silhouette of the graduation work of Demna Gvasalia.

The Georgian Gvasalia graduated in  2006  with his ‘Made in Antwerp’ collection, a theme which is still present in his work for Vêtements today. It’s great to see that Antwerp is still in his heart after all those years in Paris. The silhouette on the photo was shown in the theme ‘Arcadia’ of the exhibition, alongside silhouettes by Angelo Figus, Bernhard Willhelm and Walter Van Beirendonck.

MoMu congratulates Demna Gvasalia with his new job and wishes him all the best of luck!
