A rainy day in Antwerp, perfect time to (finally)visit the MoMu Antwerp (students only pay €3!). Quietly wandering around, reading, admiring the colours and just imagining yourself wearing some  (or all) of the pieces. The exposition Birds of Paradise runs untill August 24th, a real breathtaking exposition, finely build up around themes and makes you think designers are wizards.

KATE MCCGWIRE - A sculpting artist who works with the feathers of doves and crows, birds with bad connotations. By using their feathers, she forces the public to think about their own mind-set. The result? Wonderful sculptures!
