WOMEN FASHION POWER

Sunday 29th March, 2020

From Elizabeth I to Margaret Thatcher, Coco Chanel to Lady Gaga, the clothes women wear have always been a powerful form of self-expression and part of a sophisticated visual language.

WOMEN FASHION POWER looks at how influential women have used fashion to define and enhance their position in the world. The exhibition celebrates exceptional women from the spheres of politics, culture, business and fashion – forward thinkers who have had an impact on our wardrobes and the world stage.

Highlights of the vintage pieces on display include a Zandra Rhodes Conceptual Chic punk wedding dress, a Mansfield suit worn by Margaret Thatcher, clothes and accessories owned by Elsa Schiaparelli and a Jacques Azagury dress worn by Princess Diana.

WOMEN FASHION POWER is designed by the world renowned architect Zaha Hadid.

WOMEN FASHION POWER; Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD; tickets: £12.40,  students £9.30, members and under 6s free; until 26 April  2015. I: www.designmuseum.org
