The exhibition is timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana. The venue is Kensington Palace, where she lived for 15 years. The curators selected all the iconic items from Lady Dee's wardrobe: a navy blue velvet dress, designed by Victor Edelstein, in which Diana danced at the White House with John Travolta, a pale pink blouse by David Emanuel, in which the future Princess of Wales posed in 1981 for the official engagement portraits by Lord Snowdon, Diana's favorite Catherine Walker suits, and Emanuel's blue checkered outfit, in which she made an official visit to Venice. In total, the exposition will include 26 images. And in Kensington Gardens there will be a White Garden of Princess Diana's favorite flowers - tulips, daffodils and white English roses.

Впервые выставка работ Кристобаля Баленсиаги, великого французского кутюрье испанского происхождения, пройдет в Великобритании. Вместе с тем по времени она совпадает со 100-летием со дня открытия первого бутика Баленсиаги в Сан-Себастьяне и 80-летием с момента появления знаменитого парижского салона на авеню Georges V. Именно здесь дизайнер устроил первый показ в духе испанского ренессанса, который произвел неимоверный фурор. «Выставка исследует феноменальное мастерство Кристобаля Баленсиаги, свойственные ему искусный крой и новаторское использование тканей, которым модельер значительно отличался от современников, - отмечает куратор экспозиции Кэсси Дэвис-Строддер. По его словам, в Лондоне также продемонстрируют, как Баленсиага повлиял на мир моды в целом, начиная от своих протеже Андре Куррежа, Эмануэля Унгаро и Оскара де ла Ренты до современных дизайнеров. Более 100 платьев и 20 шляп взяты главным образом из хранилища the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons
Metropolitan Museum, New York
May 4 - September 4, 2017
For the second time in its history, the Metropolitan Museum organizes a lifetime retrospective of a fashion designer (the first, dedicated to the work of Yves Saint Laurent, was held in 1983). 74-year-old Japanese woman Rei Kawakubo is perhaps the most famous and influential fashion conceptualist. Her avant-garde ideas destroy the usual concepts of taste, beauty and fashion itself. “By blurring the art / fashion contrast, Kawakubo makes us think differently about clothes,” says museum director Thomas Campbell. Her creations exist “between essences”, at the junction of the oppositions “self-alien”, “subject-object”, “male-female”. Approximately 120 sets will be selected for the exhibition, illustrating Kawakubo's creative life, starting with the debut Paris show of Comme des Garçons1981 until the final season collection with multi-tiered vinyl structures and 3D printed items. The exhibition will be preceded by the grandiose ball of the Costume Institute, the Met Gala, which is traditionally held on the first Monday of May (in 2017, it falls on the first day). Rei Kawakubo will attend the event as a guest of honor.

Dior celebrates its 70th anniversary throughout 2017. Strictly speaking, the very fashion house of Christian Dior and fabric manufacturer Marcel Bussac opened in December 1946, but the history of Christian Dior has traditionally been counted since February 1947, when the first show of new look silhouette dresses took place in the mansion on Avenue Montaigne. In a surprising way, the Parisian haute couture house turned out to be connected with distant Australia - in 1948, the Dior spring collection defile took place in Sydney. Especially for the large-scale exhibition dedicated to the anniversary at the National Gallery of Victoria more than 140 works of the fashion house will be brought to Melbourne: the creations of Christian Dior himself, his successor Yves Saint Laurent and all subsequent designers of the house Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri.

One of the most important European fashion museums, Antwerp MoMu, is preparing an exhibition dedicated to the work of the Belgian avant-garde artist Martin Margiela during his time at the respected French house Hermès. The exposition will include 12 collections created by the designer in the period from 1997 to 2003. Deconstruction and the use of recyclable materials became the basis of his conceptual approach to fashion, in addition, Margiela never went to bow at the finale of the show, while remaining incognito. All the more surprising was his appointment as creative director of the Hermès brand, the symbol of French luxury. This happened in the late 1990s, when the management of fashion houses preferred to hire status star designers. Except for the clothing collections in which Margiela has created modern eleganceHermès, and advertising photographs, a portrait of Martin Margiela himself will be seen in MoMu.>
