The Amsterdam Museum stages a new exhibition around Fashion
Amsterdam Museum’s latest exhibition, Fashion Statements, is now on show from 18 April to 8 September. Curated by guest curator Marian Duff, the exhibition surveys fashion statements across the ages, from the 18th century to today. Featuring clothes and accessories from the museum’s extensive costume collection, the exhibition examines the way in which fashion was, and continues to be, a form of expression for its wearers. A total of 75 historical outfits will be showcased alongside new garbs from six contemporary designers. The featured designers in the Fashion Statements exhibition are (in no particular order): Ninamounah, Art Comes First, Patta, Karim Adduchi, Marga Weimans and Bas Kosters, each of whom will present three new designs based around a particular aspect of fashion, such as body shape or shoes. Envisioned as an exchange of statements, together the designs, both old and new, demonstrate how fashion has evolved over the years, and how, in many ways, it’s remained the same.
