Dear Shaded Viewers,

I visited the gallery space at Graanmarkt 13 in Antwerp the other day and had a little chat with the Italian designer, Gentucca Bini who is having an exhibition there. Will post it soon but here are a few images to give you an idea about her new project. The idea is that you bring in your favorite piece to  Gentucca and she will 'renew' it for you. Of course there will be an exchange between client and designer. 

Here is  an example with  a Balenciaga jacket.
