Birds of Paradise: Plumes & Feathers in Fashion

25 October 2014 – Spring 2015
Birds of Paradise is a tribute to the elegance of feathers used in the fashion industry, past and present. Thanks to their beauty, fragility and value, they had various connotations and were used throughout history in fashionable dress, both as an accessory and as part of the entire silhouette.  The exhibition addresses aspects such as refinement, luxury, freedom, modernism, femininity, lightness, but also themes like lost innocence and dark romance. Whereas in the past feathers were generally appreciated for their value and refinement, contemporary designers now see them as an expression of freedom and spirituality. This colourful exhibition features extravagant catwalk creations from Belgian, French, Italian and British Designers. They include Dries van Noten, Balenciaga, Prada, Gucci and Alexander McQueen. An exhibition organized by MoMu-Fashion Museum Antwerp
