Twice a year MoMu presents a new exposition: based on the MoMu collection (25,000 pieces), and completed with loaned works, these expositions might tell a designer’s story or focus on a fashion related theme. You won’t find a permanent display here, but rather a varied programme that focuses on the different dimensions of the world of fashion.

Each exposition tells a complete story. In addition to exhibiting garments, they will also portray the designer’s sources of inspiration, or connections to other art disciplines, etc. The result: an exhibition hall that changes for every exposition and takes you on a journey to a completely different world of fashion; a world just waiting to be discovered.

You can find the ModeMuseum at ModeNatie in the Nationalestraat, in the heart of the Antwerp’s fashion district. The building that houses ModeNatie was built in the 19th century as a department store for the New England Menswear and Children’s fashion shop. After a thorough renovation in 2000, led by Marie-José Van Hee, the architect from Ghent, MoMu too opened its doors here in September of 2002. The ModeNatie also houses the Flanders Fashion Institute, the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Copyright Bookshop.
