Christian Lacroix Exhibition

@ the National Museum until 7th June!

Christian Lacroix got his start as a costume designer for the Opera. Costumes are usually commissioned for the entire cast and designed as a collection so the colours and themes play off each other. Also on show are his drawings for the atelier to construct. His drawings are so beautiful, with the colour, detail on how the fabrics should flow and flights of imagination to create these designs in the first place. The curators will constantly remind you not to use flash photography as the pieces are very old and fragile. Hard to believe they are antiques as you will see similar pieces on the red carpet today.

You are encouraged to donate $2 for a look book on the exhibition.
