Ι’m deeply touched and proud of my dearest Filep Motwary for taking things up a notch.
His latest project is none other than the fashion exhibition “Haute-à-Porter” at Modemuseum in Hasselt, Belgium, which he personally curated. Through an immense archive of garments, photography, film and art,
the exhibition examines the influence of haute couture at pret-à-porter and highlights its significance in contemporary fashion.

I spent last weekend in London for the exhibition dedicated to the long gone talent of Alexander McQueen in Victoria & Albert Museum, an emotional trip down to the brilliance and inner world of a designer who cannot be compared to anyone else.
Among iconic pieces of his work from the 90s to “Plato’s Atlantis”, his last complete collection before his death, there is the hologram of Kate Moss included from his Fall/Winter 2006 fashion show that brings tears to my eyes every single time.
