"Remember Yves Saint Laurent’s brightly coloured Mondrian dresses of 1965 and the ‘Op Art’ mini dresses of the 1960s? They are vivid illustrations of the centuries-long love affair between fashion and art. Couturiers are past masters at capturing the contemporary zeitgeist in their designs, while artists have frequently used clothing as a way to give all-round expression to their aesthetic ideas. This new exhibition will show how attire is used by powerful women to stand out from the crowd and how art has often been a major source of inspiration for dress designers. Designed by Maarten Spruyt, it will include creations by Liberty, Sonia Delaunay, Schiaparelli, Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy. "

When you are in the Netherlands it will be very interesting to visit this exhibition! The Gemeentemuseum possesses one of the world's leading collections of fashion items. It includes both historical costumes and contemporary designs.
