Women Fashion Power at the Design Museum

This exhibition takes a closer look on how influential women have used fashion to define and enhance their position in the world. 

You’ll have the opportunity to take a look at the wardrobes of 25 exceptional women who’ve made their name in politics, culture, business and fashion and they all donated an outfit of their “power wardrobe”. 

The exhibition which is very nicely set, examines every decade in fashion throughout women’s choices to express themselves. 

You will have the chance to see Coco Chanel’s revolutionary outfits, Diane Von Furstenberg’s famous wrap dress, Vivian’s Westwood’s punk outfits and the original “Le Smoking Suit” by Yves Saint Laurent.

I’ve really enjoyed walking around through the exhibition, learning new things about fashion history and getting the chance to take a closer look to some iconic outfits.  

At the end, you can watch a video about women and fashion through history but it’s so badly made, that I think you can live without watching it…
