MoMu Now: Contemporary Fashion from the MoMu collection, from 25/09/2014 to 4/01/2015, is a selection of masterpieces from the recent acquisitions of contemporary silhouettes to the MoMu collection. The MoMu collection consists of approx. 25,000 objects, mainly clothing and accessories, 7,000 of which have been added over the past five years thanks to new purchases, donations and long-term loans. In addition to historic pieces, MoMu’s acquisition policy primarily focuses on purchasing pieces by contemporary Belgian designers whose silhouettes are examples of excellent craftsmanship, bold concepts and avant-garde shapes. All these elements are part of the central theme of MoMu Now.

This selection of the collection includes notable names from the Belgian fashion scene such as Raf Simons, Haider Ackermann, Walter van Beierendonck, Veronique Branquinho, AF Vandevorst and Ann Demeulemeester, but also younger talents such as Christian Wijnants and Peter Pilotto standing alongside silhouettes donated by Belgian houses (like Delvaux) and major foreign fashion houses (including Balenciaga, Helmut Lang).
