MoMu (Mode Museum) is the fashion museum of the City of Antwerp, Belgium. Founded on 21 September 2002, the museum collects, conserves, studies and exhibits Belgian fashion. The museum is specifically focusing on Belgian contemporary fashion designers due to the arising of a group of Antwerp-trained fashion designers during the Eighties and Nineties(Martin Margiela, Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Walter Van Beirendonck, Dirk Van Saene, A.F. Vandevorst, etc.). The museum's first director was Linda Loppa who was also the founder and the director of the Fashion school of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp). The current director is Kaat Debo.[1]

The flanking designs are by the German-born fashion designer Bernhard Wilhelm.

ExhibitionsEdit

MoMu organises continually changing theme exhibitions about a designer or fashion-related theme in an exhibition space specifically adapted to each exhibition. Each exhibition is created around a total narrative in which not only articles of clothing are displayed, but a complete context is presented. For example, sources of inspiration for a designer, connections with other art disciplines, multimedia collaborations, etc. MoMu works with designers and their team to develop the exhibition concept and the design of the exhibition. MoMu's exhibitions have also travelled to London, Tokyo, Munich, Istanbul, Enschede and Melbourne. Below an overview of past, present and future exhibitions.[2]
