Marga Weimans Fashion House

Marga Weimans‘ retrospective exhibition “Fashion House” opened Saturday June 14, 2014 at the Groninger Museum (in Groningen, The Netherlands), Our dear friend Mr Tromp went to this opening and took some wonderful photographs for us, they convince us we have to go see the “Fashion House” exhibition with our own eyes as well, and so should you! Danke Schön Mr. Tromp!!!!Fashion House is the first large-scale solo exhibition of the work of fashion designer Marga Weimans. From 15 June to 23 November 2014, the Groninger Museum will present the first major solo exhibition of the work of fashion designer Marga Weimans (Rotterdam, 1970), who is one of the most striking designers of this moment. The Groninger Museum has been following Weimans since her graduation. In this way, the Museum has systematically acquired items for its collection, while her work has been regularly displayed in smaller presentations. This exhibition is an overview of early, recent and new work.   As the first Dutch artist to do so, Marga Weimans graduated from the prestigious fashion course at the Royal Academy for Fine Art in Antwerp in 2005. She attracted a great deal of attention with her graduation collection, simultaneously winning the i-D Styling Award which was then being conferred for the very first time. Last year she showed her characteristic designs in several museums and on the catwalk of the Amsterdam Fashion Week. The exhibition displays work from collections such Debut (2006) and Wonderland (2009), among others. Debut covers the theme of vistas, where the voluminous black dresses are introduced as a kind of mountain landscape. Wonderland was inspired by the contrast between dream and reality”.
