MoMu Antwerp, Jacoba De Jonge Collection

I like everything about MOde Museum in Antwerp except for this habit of exhibition curators to give a high-speed spin to many of the exhibits. They rotate constantly and as a result the photo of a dress turns into a blurred cloud. There were two beautifully quilted petticoats, photo of one of them I can add to my collection, another is spinning at the background.

Of all the periods I love the 18th century most. Robes a la francaise

There was also a stunning collection of chintz costumes hidden in a dark room, accessoires and a traditional students exhibition.
