Reflection by Jean-Paul Lespagnard
A unique exhibition presented in the bold style of Jean-Paul Lespagnard!
How do contemporary artworks (Wim Delvoye, Jan Fabre, Mehdi-Georges Lalou), objects from popular culture (Delft pottery, MannekenPis) and designer items from the Museum's collections (Olivier Theyskens, Courrèges) influence the designer's work? A true look at fashion and inspiration.
This exhibition plunges you into the creative brain of Jean-Paul Lespagnard. It will then be your turn to have a go by designing a virtual scarf that reflects your own world.

Textile Box : Archivolte
by Alice Leens
"Through the choice of materials and intertwining, each piece develops in space its own rhythm, its own music. The purpose is also, as in architecture, to make dialogue between ornamentation and structure, so that we no longer know where one ends and where the other begins." Anna Ozane
A new permanent space
Over the centuries, Brussels lace has garnered international renown, even in the grandest European courts. The Lace Room tells visitors about the history and manufacture of this unique textile.
Carine Gilson is the "haute-couture" patron of the Lace Room. An item from her latest collection is always on show in the Lace Room.
