Across Art and Fashion
Salvatore Ferragamo Museum – Florence
from 19 May 2016 to 07 April 2017
Is fashion art?
A simple question conceals the complex universe of an articulated relationship that has long been investigated, but without arriving at a clear and unequivocal definition. This project analyses the forms of dialogue between these two worlds: reciprocal inspirations, overlaps and collaborations, from the experiences of the Pre-Raphaelites to those of Futurism, and from Surrealism to Radical Fashion.

Patrick Demarchelier – Lumière
February 24 – May 14, 2017
World famous, respected and highly appreciated fashion photographer exhibits at Fotografiska with Lumière February 23 – May 14. ”Show me the light – and it makes me tick”, says this charming, ever curious legend, who regards his models as artists, and who is always waiting for his best photograph to come. For Patrick Demarchelier, photography is not a profession – it is a passion. I just love it. Everything about it. Every day is an adventure and it doesn’t matter if it’s about fashion, portraits or personal projects. It’s always incredibly interesting what the result of the day will be.

February 10 – April 15, 2017
Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 highlights one of the most groundbreaking time periods in fashion history.
