Masters of Black in Fashion & Costume

Momu’s newest exhibition illustrates the historic phases of the colour black, with examples from painting, historic costume and contemporary fashion. It also looks more deeply into the textures and the potentials of black in diverse materials, including fur, leather and lace. In addition, the exhibition includes masterpieces by contemporary designers who, like the city of Antwerp, have a special connection to black.

With silhouettes by Belgian designers as well as international couture houses: Ann Demeulemeester, Olivier Theyskens, Dirk Van Saene, Givenchy (Riccardo Tisci), Chanel, Gareth Pugh and more.

The exhibition BLACK. Masters of  Black in Fashion & Costume runs from the 25th of March till the 8th of August 2010 in MoMu.
