In Antwerp I visited the Fashion Museum (MoMu). They had this amazing exhibition;  Silks & Prints from the Abraham archives. During the 1950s and 1960s the famous couturiers Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Cristobal Balenciaga worked together with the Swiss firm Abraham. This was a company who specialized in printing silks.

Antwerp Fashion Museum: A marvelous experience

This was the first time I visited MoMu. The exhibition really captured me. Seeing these vintage couture dresses, fabrics and sketches from such legendary couturiers was something special. There was even a table from this little restaurant where all the big designers used to eat. Even Coco Chanel!  Here are some pictures I took.
