“Femmes Fatales — Strong Women in Fashion” at Gemeentemuseum will celebrate the female designers who have contributed immensely to fashion. “Femmes Fatales,” which can be seen this autumn at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, will be the first exhibition in fashion history to focus exclusively on female designers.
“Do the female designers create differently for women than their male counterparts? What influence have they had? What does being a woman mean in terms of their creations? And what is their vision for fashion?” These are some of the questions that the exhibition explores. The exhibition will showcase works by Coco Chanel, Jeanne Lanvin, Elsa Schiaparelli, Mary Quant, Vivienne Westwood, Sonia Rykiel, Miuccia Prada, Maria Gracia Chiuri (Dior), Dutch greats like Fong Leng, Sheila de Vries, and Iris van Herpen, and many others.
“Femmes Fatales — Strong Women in Fashion” will feature works by an impressive list of Dutch and international female designers. In addition to the internationally famous names, the exhibition will also consider the women behind the scenes of many fashion houses, whose far-reaching influence is something that has been completely overlooked in fashion history.Read more at:bridesmaid dresses | cocktail dresses
