JOIN KNOTORYUS AT ROYAL ACADEMY OF ART THE HAGUE’S “SHOW 2017”


Posted on June 1st, by immi in magazine, style. No Comments


As is custom around this time of year, we’re all eagerly awaiting the Royal Academy of Fine Arts – Antwerp Fashion Department show (which is completely sold out!!!) and expo. Let it sink in: every last ticket for SHOW2017, taking place tomorrow and Saturday, is gone and that’s officially jump-up-dance-and-get-weird kind of news.

We couldn’t be more excited. Yet, we are, since the Antwerp Fashion Department magazine will also be sold at SHOW2017 and KNOTORYUS proudly provided the words and master’s interviews for this second collaboration with the Academy on their highly collectible publication.

If your breath is bated to the brim, get ready for another lungful because the Textile and Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK) is also gearing up for their graduate fashion show and expo on Saturday June 17. 
Lead by radical Belgian designer Jurgi Persoons, whom we had the honour to meet at last year’s show, the 2017 runway will stage the work of the grand master’s graduates Roos Boshart, Rachael Cheong Li Zhen, Veronika Konvicková and Thalonja Slui. As in Antwerp, the first-, second- and third-year students will also get a chance to test their mettle that evening. Flanked by visual greats Peter De Potter and Ronald Stoops, Jurgi Persoons art directed an accompanying poster that foreshadows a surrealist affair. In addition to the KABK show, the exhibition “EXPOSED” will take place from June 18 till June 21, where installations from the collections and textile creations from graduates will be shown. This expo will be supervised by noted scenographer Bob Verhelst, who has created unique worlds for MoMu Antwerp, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Maison Martin Margiela, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Graanmarkt 13, Cartier and many more.

We’re here for all this Belgo-Dutch excellence, and we’ll literally be there for both shows too. Follow us on Instagram for the play-by-play, you know we’ll serve you a little Boomerang runway two-step!
