Azzedine Alaïa: The Couturier

Art & Culture

This event has ended.

The Design Museum launches a major new exhibition this summer celebrating Azzedine Alaïa – the first solo show for the iconic designer in the UK. Alaïa worked with the museum to curate the show before his death in November 2017, so don’t expect the usual run-of-the-mill retrospective: stories of Alaïa’s life and career as a master couture are shown beside garments he selected himself, from his first ready-to-wear collections in the 1980s to his most recent 2017 collection.
