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: Tim Van Steenbergen
Tim Van Steenbergen graduated Magna cum Laude from the fashion department at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Subsequently he took classes in drapery and couture techniques and was Oliver Theyskens’ assistant. His first collection was launched in 2001 in Paris and that same year he set up his company Mitzlavv. Meanwhile he’s up to his 23rd collection and the Tim Van Steenbergen collection is sold in the top designer boutiques all over the world. Since 2007, he has been desinging a seasonal collection for the Belgian shoe brand Ambiorix.
