Theory Mugler from A to Z, Paris. Dedicating an exhibition to Theory Mugler is about tackling a large area as the creator has created many features. The story of the dress relates to it with oversized shoulder dresses, latex dresses and generally a playful erotic. But regardless of that showmanship, Thierry Mugler has always had a taste for the stage since he was a classical dancer in his youth. Fashionable, there are over a hundred costumes not yet on display at the show, including costumes made for Mylene Farmer, Beyonc,, Lady Gaga or David Bowie, for whom she created a sort of fairy costume! On the show page, hanging includes his clips, his shorts, his magazines and, of course, his hair-raising parades. Theory Mugler. Codourism, Museum of Fine Arts, until April 24th. madparis.fr
The world through fashion, Antwerp. In 1997, Hussein Salian covered his autumn-winter parade with ever-narrow saddles, revealing a buffoon, and then completely naked. Thus she combined a certain provocative feeling, fashion and current events. Looking back over the past three decades that saw the September 11, 2001 attacks, the economic crisis of 2008 and the recurring identity crisis, MoMu explores how fashion visualizes contemporary changes and emotions. The exhibition combines the tumultuous works of big names like Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Vivienne Westwood. E / motion. Change mode, MoMu, until January 23rd. momu.be
Between silk, Florence. The house of Salvador Ferragamo is famous for its silk scarves and ties. Fulvia, one of the daughters of Salvador, began producing squares printed with flowers and exotic animals in the 1970s, tracing their origins in the works of alumni in Oriental art, painting, botany and natural sciences. All of these inspirations have been redrawn and recorded, page after page, bringing together over 1,000 volumes in the Salvador Ferragamo Archive. In this exhibition, printed fabrics interact with the canvases, vases and sculptures that inspired them, while product drawings and color experiments reveal behind the scenes of this exceptional product.
