Streetwear Exhibition


Curated by Dominique Nzeyimana at Modemuseum Hasselt.

HYPEPEACE was recently invited to be in the 'Streetwear' exhibit at Modemuseum, Belgium, as part of the acclaimed expo Activewear.

Curator Dominique Nzeyimana pinpoints the influence of communities of colour and Black-owned and POC-founded brands.

“Streetwear has been influencing high fashion and everything around it since the early ‘80s and even if you are not a streetwear fan yourself, you can’t but have noticed that it has since become inevitable."
