Everyone, don’t tell Sally Spectra, but the Antwerp ModeMuseum has an overwhelming fashion exhibition on at the moment. Called ‘Happy Birthday Dear Academie’, it celebrates the fiftieth birthday of the world-famous Fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Of course there’s a lot of work from the illustrious Antwerp Six on display, but you can also find designs from other Antwerp graduates from the last couple of decades. Amazing how totally fresh and avant-garde everything still looks in 2014. And though I don’t work in fashion, I did get that elusive creative rush you get from seeing so many great design ideas coming together.
PS: Just so you know, the ‘Happy Birthday Dear Academie’ exhibition will end on February 16, 2014.
