“Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal," the UK's first ever exhibition dedicated to the fashion genius and cultural icon, will open at the Bowes Museum, in Teesdale, on July 11.
“We are honored to host the first exhibition in the UK of Yves Saint Laurent, one of the most influential fashion designers of all time," said Joanna Hashagen, fashion curator at the Bowes Museum.
The exhibition, a collaboration between the Bowes Museum and the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, will focus on the defining moments in the designer's oeuvre, and will include both his designs as well as items from his daily life.
