Fashion exhibitions around the world in 2017

We think that when traveling to a new place, one should always check the exhibitions that are open at the time. Exhibitions are a fun way of learning about history and creating an even bigger cultural baggage.

This year is full of fashion exhibitions waiting to open, so we’ve done a little list for you with some of the most interesting ones (that does not mean that the ones we are not mentioning are not that interesting). Here we go:

Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” at the MET Fifth Avenue

Starting 4th of May until 4th of September you can visit the Rei Kawakubo – Comme des Garcons exhibition called “Art of the In-Between”. It will feature 120 creations of the Japanese designer for Comme des Garcons. So, if you find yourself in New York during those days, visiting is a must!
