The Women of Harper's Bazaar, 1936-1958

March 1 to April 2, New York, FIT Fashion Museum

All the beauties that appeared on the pages of Harper's Bazaar under Carmel Snow and Diane Vreeland, and the iconic fashion items of that time, can be found in New York's FIT Fashion Museum in a month: the spring exhibition, united by the hashtag #WomenofBazaar, will cover an epoch in the history of the magazine. From 1936 to 1958, not only Snow and Vreeland worked there, but also the cult photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe, who personally donated many of her photographs to the FIT Fashion Museum. Her work - from covers to fashion shoots - will be on display alongside Christian Dior, Charles James, Mainbocher founder Mein Russo Bocher, and other designers of the last century, whose work has been covered by Harper's Bazaar magazine.

Game Changers - Reinventing the 20th century silhouette

From 18 March to 14 August, Antwerp, ModeMuseum (MoMu)

“Haute couture is the orchestra conducted by Balenciaga,” said Christian Dior. “All of us, other couturiers, are musicians following in the direction he has set. You can be convinced of the authenticity of his words at the Game Changers - Reinventing the 20th century silhouette, which will open in a month and a half at the Belgian MoMu Fashion Museum. It is also run by the work of Cristobal Balenciaga (1895-1972): the exhibition organizers explore the designer's influence on the entire fashion of the 20th century, in the middle of which he showed a radically different human silhouette. Thanks to Balenciaga, the body has received a new freedom of movement, clothes - impressive, almost architectural volumes. You can also evaluate his contribution to fashion in comparison with other heroes of the last century: Madeleine Vionne, Coco Chanel, Paul Poiret are presented as brilliant pioneer predecessors, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto,Comme des Garçons, Anne Demeulemeister and Martin Margiela as key followers.
