The Vulgar, Fashion Redefined

Potent, provocative and sometimes shocking, the word vulgar conjures up strong images, ideas and feelings in us all. The Vulgar is the first exhibition to explore the inherently challenging but utterly compelling territory of taste in fashion, from the renaissance through to contemporary design. Examining the constantly evolving notion of vulgarity in fashion whilst revelling in its excesses, we are invited to think again about exactly what makes something vulgar and why it is such a sensitive and contested term.

 

Among the presented pieces is the « Quand jouons-nous la comédie ? » dress in silk faille and organza painted with an unfinished décor and « L’esprit s’amuse » midnight leather satin top and ‘Bérard’ mink skirt from the Autumn/Winter 2015-16 Schiaparelli Haute Couture collection by Bertrand Guyon. There is also an evening ensemble hand-sewn with plaited gilt braid on chiffon foundation from the Elsa Schiaparelli Autumn 1937 collection.

 

The Vulgar, Fashion Redefined from 13 October 2016 to 5 February 2017
