Description of the exhibition

In "Katharina Prospekt", An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx share their vision of Russia based on the universe of A.F. Vandevorst. The colour red, military uniforms, and religious costumes, as well as materials including fur and felt are important sources of inspiration in their own collections of clothing. These are the elements which guided the two designers in their selection of objects and costumes from the collection of the State Historical Museum of Moscow.

Exhibition under the lead of
Curators: An Vandevorst, Filip Arickx & Tamara Igoumnova | Scenographer: Bob Verhelst| With special thanks to: A.F. Vandevorst & State Historical Museum of Moscow
