“Dress design… is not a profession for me, but an art” – Elsa Schiaparelli

The most beautiful fashion shows to visit as soon as possible

Because it’s time to go out again.

shocking! The surreal worlds of Elsa Schiaparelli

After the Christian Dior, Hermés and Harper’s Bazaar exhibitions, this time it is up to Elsa Schiaparelli to shine at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. That there is one nice line between art and fashion is emphasized by Elsa’s creations like no other. The Italian fashion designer worked in the 20s and 30s with members of the international avant-garde in Paris such as Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau and Man Ray.

On display until January 22, 2023 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris

Gianni Versace retrospective

This year marks 25 years since one of the most influential couturiers of all time, Gianni Versace, was murdered. A good time to bring his career, designs (for Lady Di among others) and progressive ideas back to life.

Countless outfits, accessories, fabrics, drawings, interior designs and footage of his legendary shows are included Gianni Versace retrospective see how exceptionally creative Versace was. Linking fashion to music, photography and graphic design, he was at the forefront of an era where fashion shows and advertising campaigns turned into true works of art.

Africa fashion

With this exhibition, the V&A celebrates the irresistible creativity, ingenuity and global impact of African fashion creatives. More than 250 objects, photos and textiles will be presented in the exhibition with an emphasis on diversity and innovation.

Fashioning masculinities: The art of menswear

Fashion shows are rarely about the art of men’s fashion. For the first time at the V&A, an exhibition is devoted to the power, art and diversity of masculine clothing and appearance. The exhibition examines how designers, tailors and artists have defined masculinity. A doubly good reason for a trip to London, we think.

On display until 6 November 2022 at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Balenciaga – Masterful Black

It is the first time that such a large selection of Balenciaga’s works has been exhibited in the Netherlands. The Spanish designer was known as a strict fashion designer who considered his work as his art. For his sculptural designs, he preferred to work with black because it emphasizes the silhouettes’ masterful lines even more. Kunstmuseum The Hague pays tribute to his creations in this “colour” with the exhibition.

To be visited until 5 March 2023 in the Kunstmuseum The Hague

Bastiaan Woudt – Twist

Not a fashion designer, but (my favorite) fashion photographer. Bastiaan Woudt’s work is immediately recognizable by the iconic and timeless black and white portraits with strong graphic lines, shapes and textures. He quickly gained international fame for both his free work and his commissions for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Numéro and L’Officiel. Please note: you cannot wait any longer to admire the work in Kranenburgh. This week is the last chance to visit the exhibition.

On view until September 18, 2022 in Kranenburgh, Bergen
