Exhibition: The World of Anna Sui at the Fashion and Textile Museum on view May 26-October 2017

WHAT:  The World of Anna Sui

WHERE: Fashion and Textile Museum, London

DETAILS:

“Anna Sui is the classic American fashion designer. From Detroit to New York, her signature rock-n-roll romanticism reinvents pop culture for every new generation. Since her first catwalk show in 1991, Sui has shaped not only the garments, textiles, accessories, beauty and interiors which comprise her design universe, but also the course of fashion history. The World of Anna Sui features over 100 looks from the designer’s archive, presenting a roll call of archetypes from Surfers and School Girls to Hippies, Mods and Punks. This is the first time an American designer has been the focus of a retrospective exhibition in the UK.”

2017 National Design Award Recipient for Fashion Design: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Wedge Sandal in Tri-Color. New York, 2014.


“New York–based designer Mary Ping founded Slow and Steady Wins the Race in 2002, following the launch of her eponymous collection in 2001. The work is a continuous investigation into the elements of what people wear, how they wear it, and why. Each collection contains a commentary on the cultural anthropology of modern fashion, focusing on the fundamental characteristics of design within a wardrobe. Ping was inducted into the CFDA in 2007, and is a winner of the Ecco Domani Award and UPS Future of Fashion. Her work is part of the permanent collections of the V&A Museum, The Museum at FIT, the RISD Museum, Deste Foundation, and the Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette.”
