grown-up Wednesday


Wednesday Addams is my fave character of the famous 
Addams Family for her woebegone appearance who came 
to inspire the 4th year's master collection of Antwerp's 
Royal Academy of Fine Arts graduating designer
Toon Geboers, appropriately named “Wednesday”.

A slightly dark glamour yet humorous collection made 
of striped black and white clothes with elongated silhouettes 
and huge classic and contemporary patterns made 
reinventing the traditional 'tufting' technique.

Working together with Dutch Audax Textile Museum which 
is specialized in the 'tufting' technique to make long hairy 
rugs in wool, the young Belgian designer chose to 
incorporate tulle instead of wool giving a brand 
new touch to his final year's creations.
