Millinery's Not Dead

So I have already raved on and on about how much I love Antwerp, but that city is a cultural treasure box. I just recently went on an Art Club trip to the Momu- the Antwerp Fashion Museum. Ive been to the Momu a couple times before, it never fails to impress. What's really cool bout the Momu is that there are fashion students studying on the higher floors. So when you visit, their latest projects are on display. So the exhibition we went to see was on Stephan Jones's work. IT WAS AH-MAZE-ING! There were so many hats, in so different many styles, all of them up to the same standard of creative genius and beauty. Its seriously humbling; how someone could consistently be that amazing.

Ok imma stop rambling now. Let you check it out for yourselves.

So um, just FYI Im sorry for how blurry the pics are, but the lighting in the museum was really low; as not to damage the fabric.

Why are All the Good Ones British

Recenty heard these guys on the Belgian radio, and was totally impressed they're my age and descent. Now thats a miracle in it's self. They were discovered in Manchester, England playing gigs in basements. They've come a long way, for a couple of 15 year olds, they played on stage at the last Glastonbury. Nothing massive, but still.

Livin' Local, Livin' Large

Artist: Wim Delvoye

Can ya handle it?

Born in Ghent, this Belgian artist has become internationally famous. His work
is often controversial and often parodies religion, he also likes to incorporate his
Belgian heritage in his work.
There was recently a small exhibition of his Gothic pieces downtown,
Brussels. It was awesome to have such a famous artist exhibited
so close to home, was totally worth braving the winter weather for :)

His site is worth checkin out :
