Fashion at the Museum

One of the hottest exhibits going on right now is "Azzedine Alaïa in the 21st Century" at the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands. From the moment I discovered fashion magazines I remember top models like Linda Evangelista and Claudia Schiffer wearing his creations.

The exhibit is organized by the materials the designer is famous for and displays some of his best designs as he is credited to be the creator of the bodysuit, the stretch dress and the casual Lycra shorts many of which are style in fashion today.

His name is associated with elegance, sex appeal, style, self confidence, glamour and style. The exhibit includes the designer's work of the 21st century and it's sort of a follow up of the 1998 exhibit that presented his work of the previous decades.

The Tunisian born designer is considered one of the last "couturiers" still active today and has even been named "the Sculptor of Women's Bodies". The pieces of the exhibit all belong to the his personal collection and he adjusted the dresses to fit the mannequins.

Finally, here is a video of the opening of the exhibit...

Have a great and glamorous day!
