The Alaia exhibition at the Design Museum was spectacular. Not in terms of the display or the size of the exhibit, but the stunning beauty of the man’s vision and the exquisite beauty of each piece. So inspiring, and each image I’ve shared here has sparked a plethora of ideas and visions in my head for patterns, paintings and more.
It was by chance that I went to see it, in fact. I was meeting a friend who had come in from India, and we had a very narrow window of time in which to meet. So, we went to the Saatchi Gallery and had some tea and cakes, and then while walking around afterwards, this popped up on our radar, so of course we went in! And thank goodness we did.
The textures created so much light and shade, the movement was intriguing even on static models. Some fabrics moved just from the motion of people around, and so I took photographs of some details that I adore.
I hope this post gave you a little glimpse of this amazing exhibition, especially if you were unable to see it in person. Thanks for reading!
