Belgian fashion has been among the major phenomena to appear on the international scene since the late 1980s. But is Brussels fashion really synonymous with Belgian fashion?
In order to understand ‘the spirit of Brussels’, this distinctive ‘Brussels Touch’ in fashion design, the choice was made to address the topic without any preconceived ideas. The subject of ‘fashion in/by Brussels’ has been approached as part of this conceptualization of the city as an open space, but also one that produces bonds and emotions that breathe life into creation. A look back at this unpublished and unique exhibition with the curator, Lydia Kamitsis.
Lydia Kamitsis is an art historian, author and independent curator specializing in fashion. She also realizes the exhibition « Olivier Theyskens : she walks in beauty » in MoMu. She is the author of more 20 books on fashion including L’Art de tisser le rêve: Dentelle de Calais- Caudry and recently Brussels Touch, Free Spirit of Fashion
