Fashion and tales

Fashion is art. And if we mix with fairy tales, become fantasy.
In my visit to the FIT Museum (fashion institute of technology) that exhibition called my attention. Designers and artists create pieces for movies inspired in fairy tales. We have the uncountable versions of Snow White, Red Riding Hood or Alice in Wonderland. But this exhibition was about the fairy tales inside the same fashion world. Nina Ricci, Dior or Gucci have created artistic pieces for their advertisements such as perfumes.
The exhibition was organized by associate curator Colleen Hill, and designed by architect Kim Ackert. Since fairy tales are not often set in a specific time period, Fairy Tale Fashion included garments and accessories dating from the 18th century to the present. There was a particular emphasis on extraordinary 21st-century fashions by designers such as Thom Browne, Dolce and Gabbana, Tom Ford, Giles, Mary Katrantzou, Marchesa, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Prada, Rodarte, and Walter Van Beirendonck, among others.
The pieces were set according to the representation of each tale. We have different scenarios for Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Little Mermaid and The Swan Maiden. Also we have some photos and illustrations.
