The Vulgar, Fashion Redefined at Barbican Art Gallery presents a wealth of over 120 stunning exhibits from the Renaissance through to the 21st century including historic dress, couture as well as ready-to-wear fashion.
This exhibition goes across a 500-year chronology of fashion trends exploring the constantly changing notion of vulgarity. It makes us realize that all is a matter of perception and habits. Then, the idea of bad taste can’t be universal and timeless, as it evolves constantly.
Well-known for its couture work, Maison Christian Lacroix is presenting four looks which illustrate perfectly the evolution of fashion trends through the time. It display creations from the very beginning, 1987, to 2000 enabling us to see the evolution of trends in the same House.
The exhibition is on view through February 15, 2017 and highlights the work of great designers such as Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood, Miuccia Prada or Louis Vuitton to name just a few.
