I am not sure if this is what the Grand Puba of fashion ment when he pointed out that something BYYG was coming. Fact is that this is going to be a phenomenal exhibition…

I have been buying pieces from Walter Van Beirendonck’s different clothing lines for almost 2 decades. Our 6 year old grew up wearing his designs for children. She honestly believes he’s the only designer around that really matters. Actually, when she spotted him in Antwerp a couple a weeks ago. She poked me and casually went : “Mom, there goes Walter.” I just smiled and said : “There he goes indeed.”

Press release : the floor is all yours:

In the autumn of 2011, the Antwerp Fashion Museum will present the first large-scale retrospective exhibition of the work of fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck.

Over three decades, Van Beirendonck has built up an impressive international career. He is the maverick of the Antwerp fashion scene and became primarily known for his colourful designs, his spectacular fashion shows in Paris in the 1990s under the W.&L.T. label, and the critical messages on society he proclaims in his designs. His work combines the most diverse sources of inspiration, ranging from technology, art and pop culture to ethnography.
