Christian Lacroix exhibition
Client: National Museum of Singapore
Location: Singapore / Singapore
Supervision: Horst Campman
The great couturier Christian Lacroix, who left his mark on the eighties with his brilliant colours and extravagant ornaments, presents, in this exhibition, a splendid twenty-year collection of costumes created for the ballet, theatre and opera.
Helmed by The New York Times as a "couturier unmatched for his theatrical flair", Lacroix is famous for designs that feature hot colours of the Mediterranean region, experimental fabrics and elaborate patterns that bear symbols of the many cultures and historical folklore he grew up adoring.
In Asia for the very first time, 80 spectacular costumes and 60 sketches from the collection of the Centre National du Costume de Scène (National Costume Centre, Moulins, France) and from Lacroix himself, are on show at the National Museum of Singapore from March to June 2009.
