The Black

12 Jul

by Dimitria Ioannidou//

Black is unequalled.  It is THE most fascinating colour in the history of fashion.  And to think I am a colour person… Still, no other colour has evoked across the ages such diverse and conflicting connotations, from expressing death and loss to symbolizing wealth, social pre-eminence and even rebellion.  So imagine my delight when one of my favourite museums (the fashion museum in Antwerp) hosted an exhibition on Black!  The whole exhibition unravels like a story and although it was too dark to take a decent picture, I’ll try take you there.
