Exhibition: Alaïa. Azzedine Alaïa in the 21st Century

  (Photos removed due to copyright reasons.)

From June 8th until September 8th 2013, NRW-Forum Düsseldorf will be showing the fashion exhibition Alaïa. Azzedine Alaϊa in the 21st century. 
The exhibition displays the most fantastic Alaïa fashion creations of the last ten years. 
Each room will focus on a different material that Azzedine Alaïa has consistently used over the past decade: velvet, fur, wool, leather, cotton, animal skins, chiffon and knitwear. 
Azzedine Alaïa is one of the last major living couturiers. The exhibition focuses on Alaia's work in the 21st Century. Tunisian-born Azzedine Alaïa is one of the most important fashion designers of the last decades.
The name Alaïa stands for glamour, sensuality, style, cut, self-confidence, comfort and, of course, sex appeal. His tight dresses embraced the bodies of the world’s most seductive and successful women. 

The exhibition Alaïa. Azzedine Alaïa in the 21st century has been compiled by curator Mark Wilson / Groninger Museum, the exhibits have been provided by Azzedine Alaïa.
Accompanying the exhibition, a monograph has been published: Azzedine Alaïa in the 21st Century. Hardcover, 224 pages.

I`m looking forward to visiting this wonderful exhibition. Forum NRW`s fashion exhibitions are always excellent and a must see! Can`t wait to go.

What do you associate with Alaïa? Which are your favourite dresses/items in the selection above?
