Calling all budding fashionistas! Please don't miss this utterly fabulous NEW exhibition celebrating Alaïa's unique and hugely creative designs. Alaïa's tireless passion to make every woman feel beautiful is evident in every breath-taking gown on display. Each dress shows timeless elegance whether worn by Greta Garbo, Grace Jones or Tina Turner in the 50's, 60's and 70's or more recently by Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga and Rihanna. 


Marvel at over 60 rare and iconic gowns spanning Alaïa's esteemed career alongside specially commissioned dresses by other leading designers. Wonderful creations include his famous zipped dress, the bandage dress, the corset belt and the stretch body dress.   


It took us an age to choose our favourite but in the end it had to be this one. Better start saving (and eating less)!

This is red carpet glamour at its very best!

'My obsession is to make women beautiful, when you create with that in mind, things can't go out of fashion'. Azzedine Alaïa
