    I hope this catalogue is available on V&A's web site. Sounds like a fantastic concept. I think the past is definitely something that weighs heavily amongst creative designers.

    Btw,that's supposed to be "Out OCTOBER 2004".

    I think the great thing about this is that its gives people an impression of the concept of "organic" or life. Things we never really heard about in the fashion world until the last decade or so. Like distressed for instance. This is a real purpose for alot of designers seeking influences from the past. There's a certain "second life" aesthetic about their interpretations. By twisting and experimenting with elements,it makes for a perfect dynamic and contemporary vein.

    Meg,I concur with you. Most of these designers are brilliant for me. Most are my favorites. That's why I really must have that catalogue!

    scott...i believe the article states that the exhibit is in london...even though it's a collaboration...there is no indication that a concurrent exhibit is running in antwerp...

    maybe it will travel there afterwards though... :flower:

    Um...It's actually already begun at MOMU in Antwerp and runs till January 30. It says so on their web site--which is where I got the summary from. The V&A isn't holding the exhibition till February of next year. Since it is a collaboration and initiation with MOMU they're holding it there first.

    No problem,Soft :flower:

    Trust me,I know how you feel :rolleyes:

    There's some pictures from the exhibit,btw,on the MOMU site. Not entirely crystal clear but it gives one an idea of what its like. The "Alice in Wonderland" part looks breathtaking. And the illustrated displays by Ruben Toldedo are amazing!
