High Fashion Low Countries Exhibition

Ever since the preview in july at De Brakke Grond, during Amsterdam Fashion Week, I was looking forward to the full High Fashion Low Countries exhibtion in Brussels.
I went to Brussels yesterday for the opening of High Fashion Low Countries exhibition. It is amazing!

The HFLC exhibition is open from 12th - 26th of October at MAD Mode And Design Brussels.

The first joint effort between Dutch and Belgian institutions in years, High Fashion Low Countries is a project about the development of new ideas within fashion design and the importance of knowledge sharing and collaboration. 

Sustainable development, the recuperation of traditional crafts and the injection of high-technology into new materials and techniques are all topics gaining attention amongst entrepreneurs, investors and designers the world over. The new market demands for high-quality standards

 and sustainable products which can only be accomplished through a process of deep research, innovation and experimentation that often takes place within our own countries.

Three emerging designers from Belgium and three from The Netherlands were selected to create each a capsule couture collection by collaborating with local artisans, researching on alternative sustainable materials and some of the latest technologies. When the fashion industry seeks constant change and reinvention these selected designers represent the search for alternatives that fit best the coming 
times in fashion design.

Designers invited to create an exclusive capsule collection for this exhibition are Lena Lumelsky (BE), Céline De Schepper (BE), Katrien Van Hecke (BE), Jantine Van Peski (NL), Pauline Van Dongen (NL) and Natalie De Koning (NL).


Next to them, six recent graduates fresh from prestigious Dutch and Belgian schools were chosen to represent the future talent to watch from the Low Countries, based on their innovative creations and their take on craftsmanship and sustainable design.


The fashion graduates selected to show their collections during this event are:
Manon Kündig (Antwerp Academy, BE), Klaas Rommelaere (Royal Academy of Fine Arts Ghent, BE), Morta Griskeviciute (Gerrit Rietveld Academy, NL), Yvonne Kwok (Amfi, NL), Aliki Van Der Kruis (Sandberg Institute, NL), Jef Montez (Artez, NL)

High Fashion Low Countries is an initiative of The Dutch Embassy in Brussels.

A project curated by Javier Barcala and Eve-Marie Kuijstermans.
