Today I want to finally show you the pictures from the 'Dream The World Awake' exhibition of Walter Van Beirendonck. Last September, I guess the time flies, I was invited to the opening night of the exhibition.
At the start of the evening Walter gave a speech to the audience, which was huge.
I must say I was very impressed by the exhibition. I already saw many different art and fashion exhibitions but this one was different. I liked the special approach to it. Not only it displays some of Walter's best work, but also shows his personal side. The collection of different toys, art, cartoons gives a little insight into his personality.
My favorite part of the exhibition is the room where his office is rebuild. Walter has a large collection of toys and in that office you can see a part of it. The girl that helped to build the exhibition is a fellow blogger, Christin.
Well, she told us it was a hell of a job to clean all that toys :)
Anyways, I can go on about it for a long time, but I have to study. If you live in Belgium or nearby and you love witty fashion, make sure to give that exhibition a look! It's still open till 19/02/2012 at MoMu Antwerp

This ducky is just the cutest thing! Oh, while we're are talking, I must confess I'm a toy addict.
Sorry for the blurriness, but it was quite dark in there. These are the toys I talked about.

The crazy boots Bono that never wore, but still keeps them.
These shoes were quite the eye catcher of the evening. They give light, LIGHT I tell you!
Moomin, one of the cutest fiction creatures out there!

And they had Walter cookies. Who would have thought that you could eat Walter?! Well, we did!

Excuse me my tired face, I was sick the night before.
