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: Kristel Peters

Kristel Peters

Kristel Peters is a shoe designer with more than 15 years experience in the international fashion industry where she worked for Dries Van Noten, Bottega Veneta and others. Currently, she is artistic researcher for KASK / School of Arts of Hogent where she works on the research project ‘Rethinking High Fashion Shoes’, which she explores techniques of sustainable shoe design. She is particularly interested in and researches sustainable ways of shoemaking as well as tracing new materials, which have little or no impact. Her work is a combination of craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology.

Great news for people who are already fascinated with her work because Kristel Peters will be here at MoMu on 7th February to introduce her research project ‘Alice’!
