Marlène de Wouters shines in dresses by designer Kristof Buntinx at the Queen Elisabeth competition.
During her presentation for the finals of the prestigious Queen Elisabeth competition, this year for piano, Marlène de Wouters wore three dresses designed by young Belgian fashion designer Kristof Buntinx.
This involved a black dress with draped back and three quarter sleeves in satin mousseline and crepe silk, held together by a leather ribbon and an identical ivory coloured dress in silk satin, with fabric ribbon. On the last evening Marlène shone in a long dress with plunging shoulders in lilac silk satin and two-coloured embroidered silk tulle.
She was visibly pleased about the creative synergy between her and Kristof.
Kristof Buntinx, who is from Limburg, lives and works in the capital and designs trendy accessories and exclusive gala dresses in collaboration with his workshops.
The laureates' concert of the Queen Elisabeth competition takes place on Thursday 13 June and the closing concert on Monday 17 June in the Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels.
