In modern times, dress has been used both to signify, and to bring about a change in the status of women. (…) This exhibition explores how women use fashion to define their place in the world, and their sense of themselves.
From corsets to beach wear, from ankle length to above the knee, from skirts to trousers, and reasons behind those changes explained – all of this you will find at the most recent fashion exhibition put up by the London Design Museum. It features designs by Elsa Schiaparelli, Pierre Cardin, YSL, Philip Treacy, to mention a few. Skilfully designed by Zaha Hadid, the exhibition trail guides you through the various decades of fashion, social and political changes and takes you to the world of today, aptly defined as ‘freedom to choose’. I hope the pictures I took speak for themselves, so let them take you on a little preview journey. And if you have a chance, go see the exhibition. It’s enjoyable.
