“Women Fashion Power” at the Design Museum, London.
From Elizabeth Ière to Margaret Thatcher, Coco Chanel and Lady Gaga,
female fashion has always been a powerful means of expression and a sophisticated element of visual language. This exhibition explores the way in which influential, political, artistic and businesswomen have used style to define and refine their positions in the world. And today, around twenty of these women share their clothes, photos, archives and interviews as a channel to express their beliefs through materials. The exhibition also examines a century and a half of feminine fashion by looking at the way these goddesses of the big-screen, hippies and punks have influenced the trends we see today.
Until 26th April
