posted in: The Arts-News

The Fashion and Textiles Museum of London from May 26th to October 1st 2017 will present “The World of Anna Sui” exhibition.

Anna Sui is an American fashion designer famous for her unique style based on pop culture influences and romantic rock-n-roll vibes, and “The World of Anna Sui” exhibition is the first-ever retrospective of an American fashion designer to be held in the United Kingdom.

Anna Sui exhibition will feature over 100 looks picked from the American designer’s archive, presenting a fashion travel from her first catwalk show in 1991 to her latest Wild West-themed Spring/Summer 2017 collection.

Every single piece showcased in the exhibition embodies Sui’s diverse reference points like hippies, goth, bohemian, punk and surfers style, exploring national identity through fashion and textiles.



About the exhibition, Anna Sui declared:

“I am completely thrilled and I am very involved. I worked closely with curator Dennis Nothdruft on deciding which looks from my archive to include and I’m working on a book at the same time. Though not an official catalog of the show, the chapters will be arranged in the same way the mannequins will be grouped in the exhibit by theme.”
