Walter Van Beirendonck
Part of the Antwerp six
Creates clothes i can only describe as off the wall into another dimension.
When i walked into the exhibition in the MoMu, i was stunned, the burst of colour and the excentricity.
Don't get me wrong, his clothes are visual masterpieces, that create emotion and make you want to gaze at the in wonder.
But he is a nutter.
looking deeper his clothes have meaning, the balance today in society over issues of gender, sex, democracy and luxury are all apparent in his exhibition; it's not just outlandish clothes to make a statement, the meaning behind the clothes is the statement.
Beautifully put together the exhibition demonstrates his great work over the 20 years, but he's still a nutter....
Anyway loved the exhibition, if you in or around Antwerpen, go have a look whilst it's still on, 1 euro for students, so no excuses!
More images soon, i have so many...
