The fashion industry is often seen as the home of eccentric personalities and unique, exceptional talents, but it’s the collaborators, rather than the individuals, who really push the industry forward and inspire this exhibition.
Fashion Together highlighted the process and output of seven selected duos and showcased the work of individuals from a broad range of roles within the fashion industry, from photographers and filmmakers to designers and milliners. Never-before-seen photographs and sketches sat alongside garments, films, photographic prints and recordings of the pairs in conversation with the curator, Lou Stoppard.
The show featured collaborations by: Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy, Nick Knight and Daphne Guinness, Shaun Leane and Alexander McQueen, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Gareth Pugh and Ruth Hogben, and Thom Browne and Stephen Jones.
The exhibition was timed with the release of Lou Stoppard’s book, ‘Fashion Together: Fashion’s Most Extraordinary Duos on the Art of Collaboration’, published by Rizzoli, which can be bought via Claire de Rouen Books.
The exhibition was curated by Lou Stoppard and commissioned by Ligaya Salazar.
