Fashion North has been a regular visitor at the Yves Saint Laurent Style Is Eternal exhibition at the Bowes Museum, Durham, so it will come as no surprise that we jumped at the chance to gaze lustfully at the collection once again when we took our latest Fashion Journalism students along to take a peek.
The collection, which has been two years in the making by the Bowes museum’s Fashion and Textile Curator, Joanna Hashagen, was definitely worth the wait.
The exhibition showcased some of the brands most iconic pieces with Saint Laurent’s traditional and revolutionary approach to the modern woman’s wardrobe. The five themes included Haute Couture, Masculin-Feminin, Transparence, Art and Spectaculaire.
There is still a chance to visit the exhibition before it comes to an end on 25th October. If you haven’t had the chance to look around WATCH Fashion North’s video where you can follow us around the museum:
