MoMu proudly announces its fall expo Olivier Theykens – She Walks in Beauty starring Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens and his creative evolution of twenty years!

The expo focuses on his experience in the fashion business, his craftsmanship and the changing atmospheres of his work through a multitude of silhouettes imbued with the couture spirit. Covering his dark romantic times at Rochas, his mastering of textiles and cut at Nina Ricci, his American adventure with Theyskens’ Theory and the re-launch of his own brand Olivier Theyskens, MoMu will display the silhouettes of the master’s hand.

But that’s not all! His story will be accompanied by literary voices that form a counterpoint to his visual world, photographs, films and drawings which show the creative process of the artist at work. The Theyskens muse changes through time: she’s romantic, mysterious, strong and elegant, both young and old, but she walks in beauty wherever she goes. A heart whose love is innocent!

Olivier Theyskens – She Walks in Beauty from 12th October 2017 to 18th March on display at MoMu! Stay tuned!
