Book your tickets, now
In case you haven’t heard yet, firstly, we hope we you haven’t taken on a hefty mortgage for that rock you’ve been living under. We’re afraid you won’t be staying there much longer, because 3 major names in fashion are on display this summer. From House of Dior’s iconic 70 year milestone to Anna Sui’s vintage display, this is where you can indulge your inner fashion nerd over the next few months.
3 fashion exhibits to check out in 2017
Where: Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, May 4 to September 4
This year’s Costume Institute exhibit is the first to focus on the work of a single living designer since Yves Saint Laurent. The 150 pieces span Kawakubo’s work at her groundbreaking label Comme des Garçons and explore her ability to create clothes that are at once a celebration and a rejection of fashion. The show’s eye-level displays are a commentary on the barriers between people and art.
Where: National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia, August 27 to November 7
Christian Dior is said to have loved Australia. (The designer flew 50 looks to Sydney for a show in 1948.) It’s fitting, then, that the 140-piece retrospective will touch down in Melbourne this summer. The collection, which features clothing, sketches and photographs, spans the house’s entire history (including artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s work). Magnifique.
