‘Yves Saint Laurent: Style Is Eternal’ Exhibition at The Bowes Museum

Museums around the world have turned fashion exhibitions into a trend, thus creating interesting dialogues between the garments and works of visual art. The Bowes Museum, an amazing French Chateau in Northern England, has just announced its upcoming fashion exhibition featuring the work of the great fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. A passionate art lover and collector himself, Saint Laurent was famous for merging fine art with fashion in his work — an example being his Mondrian collection, which was a tribute to the paintings of De Stijl artist Piet Mondrian.

“Fashion fades, style is eternal” Yves Saint Laurent once said. Articulating this idea, the exhibition will present fifty garments including some iconic pieces from the Russian Collection, the Mondrian dresses and the Tuxedo. The show will also open up a dialogue with The Bowes Museum’s collection, creating a unique sense of narrative around the history of fashion.
