Event: Opening MUHJO Antwerp

Last year I was invited to the opening of new MUHJO store in Antwerp.
Hanne Schoofs , a jewellery designer, opened her store together with Stijn Van Der Auwera also a jewellery designer.

Hanne Schoofs felt that is was time to create a place where jewels and lovers can enter into a dialogue with each other.
She puts also a lot of inspiration out encounters with people who are looking for a jewel with a symbolic meaning.

The store is a shop, an atelier and a gallery. Her own collection and the collection from Stijn are displayed in the store.
Other designers who have their place in the store are Elisa Lee, Damn, Kuppers & Wuytens and a lot more.

Exhibition: Hello, My Name is Paul Smith

On Tuesday I visited the exhibition Hello, My Name is Paul Smith at the Fashion Museum in Hasselt.
I also went to the opening where I met Paul Smith (see picture below).
He is really a nice guy. So if you get the chance to meet him, take your chance. 

The exhibition centers about his personals ideas. There are not that much clothes to see and I think this is a plus for this exhibition.
He started his career on under influence from his wife Pauline and they're still together.
You can see his shop from 3 by 3 meters, where his design team works, behind-the scenes from a runway show, his collaborations with brands, his workroom and a lot more.

This exhibition is bigger than in London (400 m²).
After Hasselt the exhibition will be expand to Singapore and Tokyo.
You can see the exhibition until the 7th of June in the Fashion Museum in Hasselt.
