The emblematic wrap dress turns 50 this year. A great opportunity for the museum to devote its new exhibition to the fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. A first in Europe! Discover the inspiring career of this native of Brussels who became an international figure of fashion.
Woman Before Fashion is not a retrospective. It is a free approach to the Diane von Furstenberg’s work. The exhibition presents the creations of the famous Belgo-American fashion designer and the person behind them. Comprising a selection of over 50 models and a wide-ranging iconography, the experience begins with fashion and ends with the woman. Through an interplay of visions and a juxtaposition of creations, this ground-breaking exhibition provides the keys to understanding the incredible career of a female designer who understands women.
