20 years of fashion showcased in Trieste

-
Andrea Tuzio

A real journey through the history of the last 20 years of contemporary fashion, without leaving out what the future will bring. This is “The First Exhibition – 20 Years of Contemporary Fashion Evolution”, the inaugural exhibition of the ITS Arcademy – Museum of Art in Fashion in Trieste, which thoroughly investigates and plumbs the most interesting aspects of some of the most important and ingenious designers of international contemporary fashion through their creations from the early days.

Renowned fashion historian and former director of the Palais Galliera in Paris, Olivier Saillard, is the guest curator of the exhibition, which features early works by Demna, Matthieu Blazy, Richard Quinn and a host of other designers who are writing the fashion history of the past 20 years..

The works on display were put together by Barbara Franchin over a 20-year career, thanks to the international talent competition ITS Contest.
Organized into six sections-each representing a theme or artistic current beyond the geographic origin or year in which the work was created-Expressionists, Neo-Futurists, Lyrical Abstractions, Art Brut, Free Figuration, and Self-Portrait.

More than 100 works in what Olivier Saillard describes as “the first fashion museum entirely dedicated to the most contemporary forms and expressions of our age”.

“With 14,758 portfolios, 1,089 dresses, 163 accessories, 118 pieces of jewellery and more than 700 photographic projects, this constantly growing heritage, to which new and valuable items are constantly being added, can compete with the collections of the world’s greatest museums”.
