I am beyond excited to be visiting Adelaide while the Fashion Icons exhibition is showing. This exhibition is exclusively showing at the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Fashion Icons - Christian Lacroix

Fashion Icons paints a unique picture of Parisian style within the context of contemporary fashion design since 1947 when the couturier Christian Dior re-launched haute couture with his New Look. From that time fashion design blossomed 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 inspiring today’s composite portrait of the 21st century.

Over 90 emblematic haute couture garments created by the world’s leading fashion designers will be drawn from the most comprehensive collection of French fashion in the world, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and curated by the museum’s 20th and 21st Centuries Fashion and Textile Collection Chief Curator, Pamela Golbin.
