"Moi, VERONIQUE. BRANQUINHO TOuTe NUe" past exhibit at MoMu

It is interesting to go over the archives museum's websites pages for exhibitions.  Sometimes what you may find is a full report, text and visuals with content of show, more often what there is left in the site is no more than a text from the leaflet or brochure edited for the exhibition, with no added content or enhanced information.  Then, for general public or researches the archival materials are yet to be discovered inside the museum.  In the case of the MoMu, I have been documenting most of the exhibits from 2008 and since this blog started later than that date, I have decided to digg into the photo-archives to retrieve some images from an interesting show "Moi, VERONIQUE. BRANQUINHO TOuTe NUe", by Veronique Branquinho, fashion designer based in Antwerp, Belgium.  The show had a "mise-en-scene" with artistic display, and dramatic scenography, in many tones of blacks, dark rooms and dramatic lighting effects.

Text from the visitor's guide:
In 1995, Veronique Branquinho graduated from the fashion department of the Royal Academy in Antwerp. Only two years later, at 24, she presented her first collection (spring-summer 1998) at the Paris Fashion Week. In 1998, only a year after her debut, she went to New York to receive the prestigious VH1 Fashion Award as ‘The Best Newcomer in Fashion’. In 2003, she added her men’s line and opened her flagship store in Antwerp. To mark the 10th anniversary of her label, the Fashion Museum presents the exhibition Moi, VERONIQUE. BRANQUINHO TOuTe NUe.*

The designer shut her firm down in 2009, and was appointed artistic director to Delvaux later in that year.
