MoMu and Flanders Fashion Institute have joined forces and are putting Belgian shoe talents in the picture! With MoMu’s ‘FootPrint – The Tracks of Shoes in Fashion’ exhibition and FFI’s #ikkoopbelgisch campaign, the collaboration between MoMu and FFI was the perfect match! Each week from 17th November to 14th February, different contemporary Belgian footwear brands will be displayed in the museum hall. Next up: Elisabeth Claes!

Elisabeth graduated from the fashion department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. Her motivation to study fashion stemmed from her fascination for the human body. She also studies drama for a year at the Herman Teirlinck Institute. The theatrical and narrative dimension of drama still has an influence on the work of this young designer. Elisabeth Claes’ work always emanates a poetic, calm and sober atmosphere through the use of natural materials and artisan craftmanship.
