Today I went to Antwerp with school and we went to the Fashion museum ( MoMu) and we saw an amazing exhibition. The name was SILKS AND PRINTS FROM THE ABRAHAM COLLECTION: COUTURE IN COLOUR. Abraham is an company that's about 135 years old but it began to get famous after WW2. Abraham has and outstanding textile collection, it is and was a source of inspiration and a pointer to the fashions of the future. Abraham worked together with worldfamous brands like: Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Balenciaga.
We saw amazing printed fabrics and beautiful dresses, we could see how fabric was printed (manual).
I'll post some pictures for you below.
