POP-UP SHOP CONQUERS PARKING
A new creative hub will open in Borgerhout on 15 & 16 May
INDUSTRIAL PARKING BECOMES
A CREATIVE SHOWCASE
Abelone Wilhelmsen, fashion designer: “When entering the car park, you immediately see the display case of the former caretaker. We want to give that beautiful glass room a creative interpretation, together with other beautiful industrial corners of the car park. Our ambition is to organize a pop-up space in this car park, where you can discover local entrepreneurs, designers and artists.
Creating a positive framework in which a wide range of events, exhibitions, drive-in cinema, fashion shows, designer flea markets, record releases or small concerts can be realized. A space that reflects and unites the diversity and creativity of this multicultural neighbourhood.
First Edition: Weekend 15 & 16 May. Between 2 pm-6pm
SLOW FASHION by Abelone Wilhelmsen
Discover Abelone’s timeless Scandinavian urban women’s and men's wear. Our Crystal Clear collection consists of dresses and skirts that emphasize the feminine body, blouses and sweatshirts with graphic details and a great fit and style. Elegant gender-neutral kimonos in recycled denim, minimalist blouse with subtle shadow detail, and short or long modern Pointy cardigans with architectural pockets that you can wear with or without a belt or an ultra soft velvet sweatshirt in 6 pastel shades to brighten up your wardrobe.
Say Goodbye to fast fashion today!
Slow Fashion means that we opt for small-scale productions made in Belgium, limited editions, "made on demand" and pre-sale of our new designs. We also deliberately do not use seasons. You can spoil yourself with a new style or a complete outfit for spring during the pop-up!
LIVE PAINTING by Australian Mural Illustrator Sam Shennan.
designed a wall art for citibee parking, which he will paint live on April 3 and 4. He travels the world bringing people's vision to life using spray paint or virtual reality tools. Commissioned by companies and private individuals, it enhances the playful atmosphere in every room. His all-surface illustration breathes new life into any location, both physically and virtually. His style is colourful, outspoken and intriguing.
BRON Kombucha - Brewery & Tasting by Natalie Schrauwen
Since January 2020, BRON has been working in its artisan microbrewery in Antwerp on an unpasteurized, unfiltered and vibrant kombucha for the non-alcoholic pairing in star restaurants. We work with high quality seasonal and, where possible, local ingredients. As it requires really good fermentations, we take the time to mature and ferment BRON Kompucha.
The flavour additives are based on (medicinal) herbs and spices, without the addition of sweet fruit juices. This gives our fermented drink a lot of body and flavour. You can come and taste and buy bottles during the pop-up.
CROSS-OVER in hip Borgerhout
Maya van der Brempt, project coordinator at citibee parking, with a background in the cultural sector (production manager by Arenberg), and Danish Abelone Wilhelmsen met in the fall of 2020, when Abelone was looking for an industrial location for the photoshoot of her new collection. Abelone was as well in need of a parking space for her bicycle that transports her collections and fabrics to local manufacturers.
