The Fashion Museum in Paris called Palais Galliera is re opening on 28th September after years of renovation, and for this eagerly awaited opening the museum gives pride of place to Azzedine Alaïa! With a selection of 70 iconic design of the great fashion designer, the Parisian retrospective traces his creative path, from his first collection in 1979 to now. Alaïa has shaped a new body, as a sculptor whose hands shape muslin and leather. He is one of the few to control all stages of the production of a garment: draw a pattern, draw on the canvas shapes and volumes he has in mind, cut, sew and tame tissue. Inventing new morphologies, his work transcends time, establishing him as the sublime craftsman, and the insatiable lover of women who has many admirers. We cannot get enough of it! Check out the event here!
From September 28 2013 to January 26, 2014
Curator: Olivier Saillard, director of the Palais Galliera
