With CULTURE COUTURE, The Tropen Museum in Amsterdam shows how authentic costumes from different cultures can inspire new, contemporary couture.
In this exhibition you’ll see the work of three promising international designers from Antwerp’s renowned Fashion Academy:
Manon Kundig, Teddy Beard Collection
Tabitha Osler, Mount Analogue (Be sure to look at her website!)
Wali Mohammed Barrec, Shoes
