Les Canaux de la Mode introduces the artworks in an intriguing exhibition in the Museum Van Loon. Besides displaying the final results, the exhibition also concentrates on the proces of developping the artworks. The exhibition – designed by the Amsterdam-based And Beyond Studios – effortlessly blends the modern artworks in the 17th century decor of the Museum Van Loon.

Co-creations – a series of unique artworks
After the first successful edition of Les Canaux de la Mode in 2008, a new group of designers and craftsmen have collaborated on creating beautiful artworks. The participating designers are Marga Weimans, Marloes Blaas and Melanie Rozema. The participating craftsmen are Jean-Pierre Baquère (glass), Severina Lartigue (silk flowers), Nicole Emilie Roca (paper) and Laetitia Schlumberger (corset). Challenged by language barrier, distance and different cultural backgrounds, they have started different collaborations.
Les Canaux de la Mode will introduce the artworks during two intriguing exhibitions – one in Paris, one in Amsterdam.
The long process of creation is often eclipsed by the end result shown on the catwalk. However, these exhibits – thought and set up by the Amsterdam-based And Beyond Studios (http://www.andbeyond.nl/ ) – will emphasise the fruits of hard work made by several hands and as many heart.
The exhibition will show both the process of co-creation and the final results and will make your fashion heart beat faster.
Three Dutch fashion designers teamed up with four French couture craftsmen during the past year to create undivided fashion garments as well as accessories.
The selected designers are: Marga Weimans, Marloes Blaas and Melanie Rozema.
The French couture craftsmen are: Jean-Pierre Baquère (glass), Severina Lartigue (silk flowers), Nicole Emilie Roca (paper) and Laetitia Schlumberger (corsets).
The opening will take place on the 05/07/2011 from 17h30
