It’s no secret that Belgium is proud of its local artists and designers. With an international reputation, Belgium is on the forefront when it comes to artistry. With that being said, Belfius opened its Belfius archives and created a new expo ‘RECOLLECTION – ART & FASHION’ featuring works of Belgian artists such as Rubens, Pourbus, Théo Van Rysselberghe, Jef Verheyen, Jo Delahaut and Rinus Van de Velde interacting with silhouettes from the MoMu archives and from private collections, with studio KRJST as décor builder.
In collaboration with MAD Brussels and the Flanders Fashion Institute, Belfius gave a few young designers the opportunity to design a silhouette inspired by the Belfius collection which is the perfect way to draw attention to the artistry of the designs. Thanks to these young designers including Marie-Sophie Beinke, KRJST, Gioia Seghers, Kim Stumpf, Doriane van Overeem and Pierre-Antoine Vettorello, the Belgian fashion academies secured their spot internationally.
RECOLLECTION – ART & FASHION until 23 April 2017 in Belfius Art Gallery, Brussels
