The world-renowned fashion museum, The Palais Galliera, is set to open its doors to the public once again after many years of renovation, on the 28th of September. In celebration of its re-opening, the unfortunately underestimated fashion designer and living legend, Azzedine Alaia, is presenting a retrospective of his life work.
It's no surprise if you're unaware of this designer, but there's no doubt that his influence has hit the woman's wardrobe to some degree. The designer brought body-hugging silhouettes and a new level of sultry to women's fashion, heavily influencing the popularity of spandex and off-shoulder dresses in the 1980's. It's a shame to know his work often goes unacknowledged amongst the greater fashion-conscious crowd, but hopefully this exhibition will bring back the mass appreciation he deserves.
