Milan Fashion Week is not only about runways, it is also a time to celebrate fashion, and this is what happened in the exclusive golden room of Palazzo Chierici, home of the famous frescos by Giambattista Tiepolo. The golden room, normally closed to the public, hosted the first exhibition in Milan dedicated to Tunisian iconic designer Azzedine Alaïa, who passed away last November. The exhibition ran for a very limited period of time coinciding with the Milan Fashion Week.
In the majestic room of Palazzo Clerici, it unveiled 21 of the most famous dresses by Alaïa from the 80’s to his last runway in Paris, and was curated by famous fashion historian Olivier Saillard. Each mannequin was shaped around the body of Naomi Campbell, who was a very close friend of Azzedine Alaïa.
