The first exhibition of the Fashion Room presents 16 of the museum's recent acquisitions produced in around the year 2000 – the turn of the millennium. This choice indicates the museum’s desire to place Brussels and Belgian creation in an international context.
Without claiming to be exhaustive, this selection reveals certain key fashion trends of the period: minimalism, hypersexualization and deconstruction.
With creations by: Giorgio Armani, Issey Miyake by Naoki Takizawa, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Comme des Garçons, Ann Demeulemeester, Annemie Verbeke, Beauduin-Masson, Dries Van Noten, Prada, Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, Véronique Leroy, Gucci by Tom Ford, Olivier Theyskens, Dolce & Gabbana.
Among the documents on display you will find pieces kept by the Archives of the City of Brussels, lent for the occasion.
These pieces are from the Archives of Eric Beauduin, fashion designer and co-founder of the brand Beauduin-Masson.
This exhibition is to be seen from October 16th, 2019 till March 22th, 2020 at Fashion & Lace Museum.
