Azzedine Alaïa: The Couturier

Celebrating 35 years of design excellence

Today (October 6th) was the last day of the Azzedine Alaïa exhibition at the Design Museum, so I want to share with you some snaps I took when I went earlier in the year - for those of you not able to make it, and for those who want to relive the excellence.
The exhibition was conceived and co-curated by Alaïa himself, before his untimely death in November 2017. It showcased many of his amazing pieces including the custom red gown worn by Rihanna to the 2013 Grammy Awards and the iconic hooded gown worn by Grace Jones.
Alaïa had a special understanding of the female body - he created figure-hugging garments, often described as "second-skin dressing" that make women look and feel their best. “No other dress can make a woman look and feel as good as an Alaïa dress because it cinches a woman’s body perfectly,” says Naomi Campbell.
What an honour it was to be in the presence of such beautiful craftsmanship xo
