I lost my faith at one point for fashion exhibitions as I wrote earlier. I understand their purpose, it is to serve the masses and promote the brand to the public as a new way of advertisement.
However, there is a difference between retrospective exhibitions and exhibitions organized by the brand. I recently visited at Palais Galleira, which is currently hosting a Martin Margiela retrospective, art directed by Margiela himself. As having an obsession towards fashion archives and history, this exhibitions was truly food to my soul. Margiela’s influence in fashion could be seen so clearly, plus they were showcasing some most precious archive pieces which would be impossible to find anywhere else. I can’t recommend this one enough. MARGIELA / GALLIERA, 1989-2009, Palais Galliera until 15th July 2018
