Unpicking Couture premieres spectacular high-end fashion which has recently entered Manchester Art Gallery’s collection.

Exhibition: Unpicking Couture

The Unpicking Couture exhibition celebrates pioneering creativity and design, with each outfit representing a groundbreaking moment in fashion.

It features work created by influential designers and fashion houses, such as Christian Dior, Elsa Schiaparelli, Azzedine Alaïa, Cristobal Balenciaga, Pierre Cardin, Vivienne Westwood, Yohji Yamamoto, Bruce Oldfield and Alexander McQueen.

The two main themes of the show are: investigating the links between fashion and emotions, in the form of dopamine dressing which encourages dressing for joy, and focusing on repair and restoration, inviting us to consider the lifecycle of a garment and the way it is valued and cared for.

Free admission.

Runs from 21st July until 12th January 2023.
