The Alliance Française will present its Fashion Show on September, Friday 25. Get a pre-taste with a discussion about “Art and Haute Couture” with expert Larissa Noury.
The Colour, Art and Fashion design concerns the Harmonies of color associations of textile and other materials used for couturier’s aesthetic project. It is an illustration of collaboration of artists and couturiers on the harmonies of color associations in order to create a personal style and marque or brand identity. They were more closely tied at the turn of the 20th century than they are today. Artists did not see the difference between creating an original work of art, such as a painting, and designing a textile pattern that would be reproduced many times over. Each was a valid creative act in their eyes. There are a lot of vivid illustrations of the centuries-long love affair between fashion and art of color. Couturiers are past masters at capturing the contemporary zeitgeist in their designs, while artists have frequently used clothing as a way to give all-round expression to their aesthetic ideas.
This event will be in English.
Light refreshments will be offered after the discussion.
