Over the centuries, Brussels lace has garnered international renown, even in the grandest European courts.
The Lace Room tells visitors about the history and manufacture of this unique textile. This remarkable Brussels lace, which has now disappeared, is showcased through rare pieces from the museum's collections while modern-day lace is presented as an artistic discipline and adornment for couture items.

Iconic designs from the Carine Gilson Couture House build upon the great classics. Lyon silk and Chantilly lace, the designer's favourite materials, take centre stage. A true trademark of the design house, her mastery of lace overlays on silk makes her creations immediately recognisable; an intimate marriage of silk and lace, oscillating between fluidity and finesse.
