Grace and style
As an exhibition of clothes and jewellery owned by the late actress Grace Kelly opens at the V&A in London, Lottie Johansson considers the phenomenon of the fashion exhibition
If you are visiting a major city and in need of a shot of culture, instead of an art show you might choose to see a fashion exhibition such as Grace Kelly: Style Icon, newly opened at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. You would not be alone: the number of people attending fashion exhibitions at art galleries and fashion institutions around the world has increased considerably over the past few years. And we are not just talking fashion insiders here; these shows attract a wide demographic audience. With recent inspiring and diverse shows such as The Golden Age of Couture at the V&A, Superheroes: Fashion & Fantasy at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Madeleine Vionnet exhibition at the Decorative Arts at the Louvre in Paris drawing record-breaking crowds, this is very much the age of the blockbuster fashion show.
