Naty Abascal and Fashion!
The Naty Abascal exhibition and fashion! is presented at the Jumex Museum from November 8, 2019 to January 5, 2020.
The exhibition includes a careful selection of dresses and suits from the Naty Abascal collection, the Spanish fashion model and consultant who became known in 1964 when the Creator Elio Berhanyer asked her and her twin sister Ana Maria to parade with their designs at the New York International Exposition.
In her professional career, Naty Abascal has been portrayed by Richard Avedon’s lens, Peter Beard, Horst P. Horst, Bill King, Bert Stern, Norman Parkinson, Melvin Sokolsky, Bill Silano, Lord Snowdon, Frank Horvat and William Helburn, among other photographers, for magazine covers such as Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, GQ and Vogue.
The exhibition at the Jumex Museum evokes the great ateliers or sewing workshops, where mirrors have witnessed, along with designers and models, the evolution of fashion. The highlights highlight the particularities of the cut and the proportion of the suits that contribute to the transformation of the female silhouette, which gives testimony of contemporary times like any other art form.
‘Naty Abascal and fashion!’ explores the relationship between the mirror, the dress, the designer, photography and especially Naty as inspiration. The public will see in rooms around of 90 haute couture designs from creators and firms: Azzedine Alaïa, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Jacqueline de Ribes, Christian Dior, Dior by John Galiano, Valentino Garavani, Christian Lacroix, Ralph Lauren, Zuhair Murad, Elie Saab, Giambattista Valli, Gianni Versace, Emporio Armani, Etro, Gucci and Saint Laurent Rive Gauche.
