Zuiddag is an organization for and by youngsters! On this day more then 12.000 young people between 15 and 18 years old are skipping school to be able to experience the job of their dreams!
Meet Aurélie, our MoMu/Zuiddag girl!
“I am Aurélie, and I am in the 5th grade at school and today I worked at MoMu. Yes only today and that is because today was ZUIDDAG, we could choose where we wanted, and the money earned is going to a foundation for children in Gaza. So it was a great experience to help here at MoMu. In the morning I helped Klaartje from the Education department to clean up the Atelier for children and in the afternoon I helped Birgit at the MoMu library.
I did not only work I also got the opportunity to check out the new exhibition. It is very difficult to choose one favourite piece out of all these beautiful clothes. For me it is not even possible to choose one work, but after a while I found two outfits which are absolutely fantastical. The first one is made by Raf Simons for Christian Dior. I love this one because it is very classy, chic and girly at the same time. The second one is a piece made by Peter Pilotto. It is a combination of a skirt, a blouse and a short jacket , the colours are perfectly matched and even the prints are beautiful together. I really like these two because they are my style and I would definitely wear them myself if it was possible. Everybody who’s interested in fashion should come and check out this exhibition, because this is just WONDERFUL!”
