One of the most stylish exhibitions I have attended in Adelaide in the last 11 years. Over ninety emblematic haute couture garments created by some of the world’s leading fashion designers debut on North Terrace in this major exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Exclusive to Adelaide, Fashion Icons: Masterpieces from the collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, draws on the most comprehensive collection of French fashion in the world.
Starting in the 1950's and moving slowly through legendary couture garments spanning seventy years. The exhibition examines the evolution of fashion styles through the decades to reveal modern fashion’s incredible and fascinating journey.
Stroll through time in Parisian style, beginning in 1947 when the couturier Christian Dior relaunched haute couture with his New Look. See fashion design blossom, with the lavish splendour of the 1950s, the futurist dynamism of the 1960s, the inspired emancipation of the 1970s, the unbridled excess of the 1980s, and the pure minimalism of the 1990s – all of which inform today’s composite portrait of the twenty-first century.
The exhibition will be on until the 15th February 2015 so if you are in Adelaide, dress it up..take your girlfriends and enjoy a day InStyle!
