This fall, the MoMu Fashion Museum presents “MADAME GRÈS. Sculptural Fashion”, an overview of the work of the Parisian couturier, Madame Grès (1903-1993). Madame Grès felt herself as much a sculptor as a fashion designer: ‘I wanted to become a sculptor. For me, working with stone or fabrics is the same thing.’ In the 50 years of her career, her work went through a range of stylistic periods, from Hellenistic, draped evening dresses to modern, minimalist daytime garments and stylish beachwear, always in her own specific style: uncomplicated without ever being simplistic, timeless, sculptural and utterly feminine. Conceptually, the design of the exhibition at the Fashion Museum will be consistent with the sculptural fashion of Madame Grès. The exhibition will run from September 12th, 2012, till February 10th, 2013.
