pas de chance @ Momu, Antwerp

Come get your photo taken with the Nudie Cohn’s car!

An exhibition of designs by Nudie Cohn, curated by fashion historian Mairi MacKenzie and designer R. Cerimagic, opened this past weekend at the Mode Museum in Antwerp, Belgium.

The exhibition features the collection of Belgian entertainer Bobbejaan Schoepen and his wife Josée, lifelong friends and collectors of Nudie. This is the first European exhibition to examine the work of the Ukranian born tailor who revolutionized the clothing of Country & Western music. In addtion to the clothes, there will be screenings of films by Craig McDean and Alice Hawkins.

That’s not all! 😉 A pas de chance title is featured in the show! Western Suit, by Derek McCormack. WS is an exerpt from a book I designed for ECW Press, Haunted Hillbilly, which also makes an appearance.

Western Suit includes a shirt pattern designed by Grant Heaps, with full instructions so you can make your own western shirt!

Derek’s work is further examined in the exhibition catalogue, Dreamsuits: The Wonderful World of Nudie Cohn, written by Mairi MacKenzie, to be released by Lannoo Publishers.
