Azzedine Alaia: The CouturierA major new exhibition at the Design Museum, Azzedine Alaa: The Couturier explores the career and creative process of the famed couturier and shoe designer. Before his untimely death in November 2017, the museum had worked closely with Alaa to plan this major exhibition. Following his passing, the unique exhibition will go ahead as the designer had planned, exploring his passion and energy for fashion as he himself intended it to be seen. Renowned for his skill at tailoring and innovative use of materials, Alaa would design his garments by draping and sculpting directly onto the human frame and meticulously cutting his own pattern. This exhibition will showcase more than 60 outstanding examples of his work from the past 35 years as well as specially commissioned architectural elements by leading artists and designers with whom Alaa worked closely.

About Design Museum

In 2016 the Design Museum moves from is long standing home at Shad Thames to a venue three times the size, the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington High Street. The Grade II* listed building has been transformed by a design team led by John Pawson to include the Swarovski Foundation Centre for Learning, 202-seat Bakala Auditorium and a dedicated gallery to display its permanent collection, accessible free of charge.
