I’m in a travelling mood and wish I could hop on a plane to visit all the wonderful fashion exhibitions that are currently being organized all over the world.
Toronto’s Textile Museum would be next for the “Marimekko, With Love” retrospective — detailing the Finnish “company’s origins and role in shaping a new aesthetics and approach to living through fashion and design”.
Finally, I’d need at least a few days in New York. To check out “Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced“, an homage to the colourful career of the disco era innovator. Visiting the twin exhibitions at the Museum of Chinese in America would conclude my short art trip. “Front Row: Chinese American Designers” celebrates the rise of Chinese American designers who decided to make their marks in New York. The second exhibit, “Shanghai Glamour“, explores how Shanghai women and their fashionable dress helped shape the city’s identity, internationally known as “the Paris of the East”.
