Topshop + Hunting & Collecting = <3

First time ever we can buy Topshop/Topman in Belgium! Where? At Hunting & Collecting in Brussels. It ‘s also the first time Topshop sells it collection in a store that ‘s not theirs. I guess this means we have some nice concept stores in our country, since Topshop chose Hunting & collecting to sell their clothes (They have asked Ra too). The collection was welcomed with a little event; the visitors had access to a typical English breakfast buffet, yummy. The collection itself also had the success of yummy cookies, several pieces where already sold out, me too I couldn’t resist…

8+ goals Fashion show

The  8+ Goals fashion show was organised to promote the UN millennium goals. The show took place at the Museum of fine arts in Brussels, perfect match.. It was not just a quick fashion show, it was a real showcase mixed with modern dancing and opera singing.
Every designer promoted another goal..:

Natan was chosen for the goal of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger by half. What Natan showed us was a collection that showed richness, and diamontery…. woops

Anne Kurris promoted the goal of achieving universal primary education, we got that message! she presented a brightly coloured children’s collection. Cuteness all over the runway.

Marrocan designer Noureddine promoted gender equality and empowering woman. It started promising, with the mysterious capes.. But COME ON… find a better idea then putting men and women in the same black pyjama! Luckily this wasn’t what she wanted to show us, a literally stunning collection came afterwards.


 
 

Next my dear JeanPaulKnott came defending the reducing of child mortality rates with a collection in mortal black. I love his talent in making sophisticated clothing, he ’s got skills..

 

Maison Anna Heylen made an interesting collection on improving maternal health. Nine girls with growing skirts. pregnancy!

Combating HIV, malaria, and other infectious diseases came with a cool dancing scène about a jacket sprayed with infectious blood. A jacket collection from Alice + Zorro followed.


  

On aura tout vu‘ is the brand of three genius designers. They showed their latest aquatic collection for ensuring environmental sustainability.
There has been allready a lot of buzz about this collection on fashionblogs. Seeing this awsome collection live was soo cool!

 

 

The last theme was about the development of a global partnership for development with an all white mens collection by Bruno Van Gils. (I wasn’t impressed, certainly after the ‘on aura tout vu’ collection..)

I went to the show with fashionblogger Lisa, who shot the pretty pictures.

Modo Brussels

I ‘ve visited my hometown Brussels yesterday, like a real tourist with a map in the hand and camera around the neck (luckily NOT wearing shorts and sandals with white socks). It’s the fashion parcours Modo Brussels that made us tourists. That parcours was a good opportunity to visit all the cool shops in and around the Dansaert street. There were about 60 places to visit, for this event the shops had creative installations of Brussels’ fashion designers and students from Brussels’ fashion school.

The first store we couldn’t resist walking into was Kartell, home designstore, there Céline Lellouche exhibited her collection, impressive.

Next we walked by the lively shopwindow of Underwear where Tine Prophete showed her first collection.

We made a stop at the unique vintage shop Idiz Bogam. The lady on the left wore a piece of Vanessa Vukiceviks collection, who exhibited her work here.

Hunting and Collecting showed ‘stunning’ heads from Mouton Collet (two french jeweldesigners who are not scared of some extravagance)

Modo parcours made me discovered MAPP., a clothing store with a great selection of magazines in their store, Belgian designer Valéria Siniouchkina had her exhibition installed in the shop around her label Girls from Omsk.

End of evening.

Vintage market

On the agenda yesterday was the first edition of the Vintage Market in Brussels in the tiny but cosy Madame Moustache et son Freakshow at place St Catherine (the market takes place every first monday of the month). I like the initiative very much, and so did many other vintage lovers, that was obviously by the amount of people who came and checked this out. I hope they evolve by next time in light, heat but also size and amount of vintage stuff..
