SHOW OF THE WEEK
Abstract Mode: Geometric Fashion and Textiles.
We know we brought this show to your attention on Friday but we find ourselves so besotted with this exhibition we want to double the encouragement for all fashionistas to make their way to the second floor of the National Gallery of Victoria. We revisted the show on Saturday after battling the swarms in Pisarro. His paintings were good (lets face it really good) but they were no match for John Galliano for Christian Dior. Our hearts belong to textiles, what can we say?
We breathed a sigh of happiness as we gazed lovingly over Issey Miyake's genius pleats, swooned at the Pucci print, the Amish quilt and the perfect Commes des Garcons ensemble as designed by the brilliant Rei Kawakubo.
Clearly we can't get enough of the stuff. Get on down St Kilda Road. And dress for the occasion.
NGV International 180 St Kilda Rd. Show runs until Nov 12 (yes that is a long way off but if you don't go now you'll forget about it and the next thing you know it's Christmas).
