Fans of one of fashion’s most quirky designers Anna Sui, will be happy to hear that there’s an exhibition soon to open in her honour; one that celebrates her perfectly eclectic designs.
Opening in London’s Fashion and Textile Museum in May next year, the exhibition will be showcasing over 100 looks from the designer’s archive including her breakout 90s looks, as well as hippy styles, Mods and Punks.
Sui came on the New York fashion scene from Detroit and her designs made their mark in the height of the 90s, with her 1993 Grunge and 1994 Punk Collections. In fact looks from these catwalk shows were so popular that in May of this year Opening Ceremony teamed up with Anna to re-release some key looks for a capsule collection called 90s Grunge Girls.
In addition to clothes, the exhibition will showcase Sui’s impact in the world of beauty and accessories. Sui has built up a strong accessories and cosmetic business, at her recent S/S17 NYFW show she added to her extensive fragrance back catalog, by launching her latest fragrance called Romantica Exotica.
The exhibition will run alongside the release of a new book by the same name, which celebrates Sui’s impact in the fashion industry from the 1990s until now.
