Brooklyn Museum fashion exhibit honors iconic futuristic designer Pierre Cardin

Posted: Updated:

A fashion exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum is honoring the work of international futuristic designer Pierre Cardin.

Pierre Cardin: Future Fashion has been on display since July, and features clothing made from metallic materials like vinyls, plastics, and the self-named Cardine synthetic fabric.

Cardin became famous for his bold, futuristic looks of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

The exhibition presents over 170 objects drawn from his atelier and archive, including historical and contemporary haute couture, prêt-à-porter, trademark accessories, "couture" furniture, lighting, fashion sketches, personal photographs, and excerpts from television, documentaries, and feature films.

At 97 years old, Cardin is still very active in the fashion industry.

The exhibit is on display until the end of 2019.
