Femmes Fatales – Strong women in fashion
17. November 2018 - 24. März 2019
That little seamstress’ is how the renowned Coco Chanel was once disdainfully described by her contemporary Paul Poiret. He targeted her because she was a woman, but in fact he saw her has a major competitor. Times have changed. More fashion houses are now run by women than ever before. A perfect moment, therefore, for an exhibition that focuses on strong women in 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 they design 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? The exhibition will include work by Coco Chanel, Jeanne Lanvin, Elsa Schiaparelli, Mary Quant, Vivienne Westwood, Sonia Rykiel, Miuccia Prada, Maria Grazia Chiuri (Dior), Dutch greats like Fong Leng, Sheila de Vries and Iris van Herpen, and many others.
