Devout/Divine - Fashion vs Religion at the Fashion Museum of Hasselt (MHM)

FASHIONCLASH is glad to mention that close to Maastricht there is a very fine fashion museum, the Fashion Museum of Hasselt (MHM)!
If you are having some spare time or if you want to do some cultural activities during the holidays than we have a tip for you: The exhibition "Devout/Divine - Fashion vs. Religion" is open until the 9th of January 2011. 

Here's a blog post by BRANKOPOPOVICBLOG: http://brankopopovic.blogspot.com/2010/12/devoutdivine-fashion-vs-religion-at-mmh.html

From the 26th of June 2010 until the 9th of January the Fashion Museum of Hasselt (MMH) is under the spell of religion with the exhibition Devout/Divine - Fashion vs. Religion. This expo doesn't show a traditional overview of historical religious garments and textile, but focuses on the relationship between contemporary fashion and religion. More specifically, the integration and translation of religious symbolism from the five major world religions in designs of the past decennia will be emphasized.
Original interpretations of burqa's, a praying carpet transformed into a handbag, habits remodelled as catwalk ensembles and Haute Couture nuns are just a few examples.

Devout/Divine - Fashion vs. Religion is a compilation of creations of national and international designers. The expo examines how religion is integrated in their work. Should this adaptation be considered as an expression of a religious view, a testimony of a civil or social framework, a ritual statement, or is it pure aesthetic?

Participants: Rick Owens, Walter Van Beirendonck, M F Girbaud, Mada Van Gaans, Bernhard Willhelm, JP Gaultier, John Richmond, A.F. Vandevorst, Giambattista Valli, Raf Simons, John Galliano, Christian Lacroix, Todd Lynn, Manish Arora, Sabijn Peters and many others.
Coordinator: Kenneth Ramaekers /Research: Eve Demoen / Scenography: Michaël Verheyden / Grafical design: Geoffrey Brusatto /In cooperation with the institution of integration Hasselt.

Here's also a blog link (post by BRANKOPOPOVICBLOG) about one of their succesful exhibition " UltraMegaLore - Hanelore Knuts": http://brankopopovic.blogspot.com/2010/04/ultra-mega-lore-hanelore-knuts.html

UltraMegaLore poster was recently awarded with the audience award for the Power of Print 2010, the competition in Belguim for promotional posters and flyers in the cultural sector.
