The exhibition focuses on the special gown designed by Gucci’s creative director worn by Björk in her music video for ‘The Gate’ (2017), the first single from album ‘Utopia’. Cut from meters of shimmering iridescent fabrics including finely pleated PVC, lurex organza and crêpe de chine, the design took approximately 550 hours to create and an additional 320 hours for the intricate embroidery work.
