In 2016, the Belgian fashion house Natan is planning to gift a couture creation to the ModeMuseum Antwerpen (Antwerp Fashion Museum). As a result of this gift, the ModeMuseum has created a film documenting the entire design and manufacturing process of the dress. The film records the various stages of the creative process of the dress: from the early design idea, the first sketch and the various fittings in the studio to the photo shoot with the model. The film is supplemented by interviews with Kaat Debo (Director of MoMu), Christian Salez (Furthermore Ltd London and Executive Director at Natan) and Pierre Mallevays (Managing Partner at Savigny Partners LLP).
The documentary can be seen from 16/10 to 4/12/2016 in the MoMu Gallery (free entrance), accompanied by a selection of unique couture creations from the Natan fashion house. The film and exhibition were made possible with support from the Deutsche Bank.
