It’s almost MoMu’s 15th  birthday and today we wanted to celebrate with Ann Salens. Long before the emergence of the Antwerp Six, Salens was the first avant-garde fashion designer in Belgium. Salens did not study fashion design, and created in a twilight zone between art and fashion: between the worlds of the luxurious and the flamboy­antly bohemian.Entirely in line with the spirit of the times, she opened a shop in the Wolstraat in the late 1960s, selling her unique crocheted designs. This dress shows her signature harmonious and intricate colour gradations and is on display in the MoMu Gallery until August 27th!
