A collection by Charlotte De Geyter Pittoors, MoMu Award winner 2016
Charlotte De Geyter Pittoors’s collection is a statement against the fast-moving rhythm of the times: a search for authentic simplicity and the bare necessities for a happy life characterise her work.
The strength of her colour use and clear lines of her work present a personal take on femininity.
Following her graduation, Charlotte De Geyter Pittoors was offered an internship position at Simone Rocha in London, where she was living and working for six months.
After that, she moved back to Antwerp, to start a fashion brand together with her mother, who already has a knitwear brand in Belgium. Their first collection of printed silk dresses is launched in October 2017.
Every year, MoMu awards a prize to one of the graduating Master students of the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp: originality, a strong visual language and craftsmanship are key ingredients for a collection to win a prize.
The MoMu Award gives a single student the opportunity to present his or her collection in an exhibition at the MoMu Gallery.
