BLACK. Masters of Black in Fashion & Costume
25 March 2010 - 8 August 2010
The exhibition illustrated the historic phases of the colour black, with examples from painting, historic costume and contemporary fashion. It also looked more deeply into the textures and the potentials of black in diverse materials, including fur, leather and lace. In addition, the exhibition included masterpieces by contemporary designers who, like the city of Antwerp, have a special
connection to black.
