The years 1990-2000. Ideal story of contemporary fashion Vol. II

The big event this winter at Musée des Arts Decoratif in Paris is the ongoing exhibiton of the Years 1990-2000. Ideal of Contemporary Fashion, which again is an extraordinary interesting an wellformed exhibitio, which attends a large audition.  It shows excellent choises of interesting and outstanding ensembles by some of our most interesting coutiriers, spite, to my oppininon some importent names are missing, as it was when we attended the former exhibition from the 1970 and 1980, where it was clear that the two times receiver of the Golden thimble, the Norwegian great couturier PEER SPOOK has been forgotten.

The mature years. Beginning with a wave of creators advocating minimalist forms such as Azzedine Alaïa, Yohji Yamamoto, Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela, the decade continued with designers with a taste for provocation, ornament and pomp, epitomised by John Galliano for Christian Dior and Vivienne Westwood.

However this time the selecion is interesting showing outfits by: Adeline AndréAzzedine AlaïaBalenciaga par Nicolas GhesquièreChanel par Karl LaggerfeldChristian LacroixHussein ChalayanJean Paul GaultierChristian Dior par John GallianoJohn GallianoJunya WatanabeLanvin par Claude MontanaLanvin par Alber ElbazMaison Martin MargielaMartine SitbonComme des garçonsDolce & GabbanaDries Van NotenE2Gucci par Tom FordVéronique BranquinhoVéronique LeroyViktor & RolfHelmut LangVivienne WestwoodPradaYohji YamamotoAnn DemeulemeesterAlexander McQueenIssey MiyakeSybilla

What is specially interesting by the fashion and mode exhibitions at Musée des Arts Decorative is that they have a very hogh an professinal exhibition making competance in that museum house. UIt is allways a great pleasure to enter the doors, as the audience can be sure that the quality and professionalisme of the exhibition is of highest possible quality.

The exhibition “History of Fashion contemporary ideal” continues with the second part covering the years 1990-2000. After decades of unbridled creation of a company celebration, 1990-2000, influenced by sociological events of the era, marked a radical change where the interests of creators is not the body itself but rather its identity.

We are also seeing the professionalization of the sector and we speak now the fashion industry with the emergence of artistic directors at the helm of old couture houses become real monopolies luxury. One hundred fifty models selected from the collections of the most emblematic transcribe the world of creators who have contributed to these movements by mode of their approach, their stylistic and their relationship with the profession, subtle and sometimes violent craft and industry.
