STYLE IS ETERNAL!
The Bowes Museum and the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent have launched “Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal”, the first exhibition in the UK to present a comprehensive display of the French designer’s work and life.
The show highlights the defining elements of the great couturier’s vision, as well as the significant influence it has had on fashion and the way we understand women swear. “Fashion fades, style is eternal” Yves Saint Laurent once said. Articulating this idea, the exhibition presents fifty garments including some iconic pieces from the Russian Collection, the Mondrian dresses and the Tuxedo. The show also opens up a dialogue with The Bowes Museum’s collection, creating a unique sense of narrative around the history of fashion.
