//BIRDS OF PARADISE
This exhibition is an ode to the elegance and refinement of the application of plumes and feathers in fashion and haute couture. Through a mixture of accessories, garments and couture dresses, the different characteristics of the various plumes and feathers are highlighted: sophistication, femininity, wealth and luxury, but also dark romance. It is amazing to see how craftsmanship is applied here, in collaboration with Maison Lemarié of Paris, the exhibition sheds light on the craft of the plumassier and the diverse techniques of feather embroidery. But for me one of the highlights were the sculptures of Kate MccGwire. They really are an addition to the fashion creations.
Overall, it is an exhibition to see! You can visit this exhibition from 20th of March until 24th of August in ModeMuseum Provincie Antwerpen – MoMu, Nationalestraat 28, 2000 Antwerpen.
