One of the highlights of next Autumn is the great upcoming retrospective exhibition for the work of  fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck, titled Dream the World Awake and hosted at the Antwerp Fashion Museum.

Inspired by technology, pop culture, art, spiritualism and ethnology, the famous designer has been causing a frenzy with his provocative creations, the critical messages he proclaims through his designs and his spectacular shows since the 1990's.

Featuring many aspects of his personality and inspirations, the exhibition will reveal many of his past projects on and off catwalk with a large reference to the costumes he designed for U2 PopMart Tour in 1997.

The exhibition runs from September the 14th 2011, until February the 19th 2012.
