Haute-à-Porter in Hasselt

From the 2nd of April until the 11th of September 2016 Modemuseum Hasselt presents ‘Haute-à-Porter’, curated by Filep Motwary.



Haute couture is synonymous with craftsmanship, luxury, extravagance and spectacle. But aren’t these typical features of contemporary prêt-à-porter? The exhibition examines this question further and researches the changing relationship and cross-fertilization between haute couture and ready to wear. Through a variety of themes and a selection of spectacular silhouettes and accessories from high-end designers and fashion houses, the exhibition highlights the significance of haute couture for contemporary fashion.
