7 fashion exhibitions you can’t miss this summer


If you already have plans for the next six months, you may need to adjust them. Did you know you can now go see hundreds of Dior couture dresses? If that is not enough, you can also go visit the exhibition of the amazingly talented fashion photographer Tim Walker or you can go and admire the 40 impressive outfits from the archive collection of Lady GaGa in Las Vegas. There are many others interesting expositions planned for this summer and here are some to spark your interest even more:

1. Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams

This is the first must visit fashion exhibition on display this summer in London. It has broken some records: 700,000 fashion lovers from around the world have seen it already. The one in London is amazingly beautiful and this new exhibition will be interesting even to those who have already visited it in France.

2.  Maximalism: Fashion Extremes (Calvin Klein, Jil Sander and other..)

When: May 9th - September 8th, 2019

“Notes about Camp” by Susan Sontag’s, which describes camp from an aesthetic point of view. The work was so influential that it catapulted the word camp into mainstream culture. The Camp became the theme of the annual Met Gala Ball and of the subsequent exhibition.

5. Body Beautiful: Diversity on the Catwalk

Where: National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh

When: May 24th - October 20, 2019

The latest high-profile scandals have led the fashion industry to reflect on such phenomena as diversity and inclusivity.

Here you can see diverse brands like Max Mara, Ashish, Pam Hogg and Jean Paul Gaultier. 

6. Haus of Gaga

About a year ago, Lady Gaga changed stylists. Now she works with Sandra Amador and Tom Irebut who changed her red carpet look.

Gaga provided 40 archival items from her personal collection for this exhibition.

7. Tim Walker exhibition

Photographer Tim Walker is certainly one of the main storytellers of the fashion industry. The multimedia exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London will show how he creates his fashion. As a bonus, we should be able to see some new Walker designs, taken from the local archive.
