MoMu’s exhibition Olivier Theyskens – She walks in beauty takes you on a journey with one of the most fascinating Belgian designers: Olivier Theyskens. The show will explore his creative evolution of twenty years in the fashion business, his craftsmanship and the changing atmospheres of his work through a multitude of silhouettes imbued with the couture spirit.

From the dark romantic side of his early designs which brought him world fame, to the new vision of couture he instilled at Rochas, his mastering of textiles and cut at Nina Ricci, his American adventure with Theyskens’ Theory and the re-launch of his own brand Olivier Theyskens, the silhouettes on show all display the master’s hand.

His extraordinary talent for drawing and autodidactic work method give a great insight into the different aspects of the contemporary fashion industry: from couture to semi-couture and ready-to-wear.

The journey will be accompanied by literary voices which form a counterpoint to his visual world, photographs, films and drawings which show the creative process of the artist at work. The Theyskens muse changes through time: she’s romantic, mysterious, strong and elegant, both young and old, but she walks in beauty wherever she goes. A heart whose love is innocent!
