A collection by Marie-Sophie Beinke, MoMu Award winner 2015
She strips the silhouettes down to the bare necessities (the basic geometric shapes and the colors red, white and black) and works from there: it is no wonder that she was selected for the Future Fashion Designer Scholarship by Bruno Pieters, whom she consulted with about fabrics and sustainable approaches.
At the heart of the collection is an unlimited creativity, and the sustainable aspect naturally flows from there.
In her own words: the silhouettes of the two parts are all another feeling of the same.
Following her graduation, Marie-Sophie Beinke did a six month internship at Walter Van Beirendonck, where she worked as his Assistant Designer until March 2017. Since October 2016 - August 2017, Beinke was teaching the Master Course Drawing and Graphics as Guest Lecturer at the Fashion Department of the Artesis Plantijn Hogeschool Antwerpen.
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.
Special thanks to Marie-Sophie Beinke and the photographers Monica Ho, Boy Kortekaas, Michaël Smits and Etienne Tordoir.
