    Vitrine is such a fantastic concept. I wish I would have been able to go to any of these because they've all been brilliant.

    I wonder who's exhibting this year?

    Rising Danish,Antwerp-trained designer Abelone Wilhelmsen

    Her concept was this:

    "Tear to Pieces"

    Explores the space between raw and delicate. An imaginary translation of material,technique and emotion..in relation to the body.

    You're all welcome!

    Mullet,I have very fond memories there. Seeing some of the "Six" in the flesh was exciting for me. Dries walking down the pavement with his bf. Not holding hands though....Belgians aren't open like that :lol: Walter Van Beirendonck staring me down like a hawk(dunno why?!)whilst taking an initial gander in his shop. Dirk Van Saene walking right passed me and not even having the slightest clue till moments later(I know...I know). I also saw model Kim Peers riding her bicycle.

    I hope to return soon. And rather than a temporary visit,I hope to make it permanent.

    Okay....taking it way off course here :P

    aw, that sounds like an awesome time :woot:
    were the designers around the whole time?

    hmm, I'm really looking forward to catch the Malign Muses exhibition in January, I think I'm going to Paris around that time so hopefully I'll jump into Waterloo to visit my friend and then to Antwerp ^_^

    Well,I was there for 3 months and I only remember seeing Walter maybe twice during the course. Both of which were the aformentioned visit at his shop and I saw him there again when I passed by one day. They were all probably off putting the finishing touches on their collections as it was around the time for FW.

    It was a fun time. And lest I forget,the city is quite majestic too. Can't forget loving the atmosphere there either...and the people....I've never met so many hospitable people in one place..ever!

    I want to see Malign Muses so badly. I hope before it ends I can catch it. If not I can always take the trip to V&A in February.
