Fashion and Feminism

Feminism has never been so fashionable… or has it? From suffragettes dressed to protest, to feminist statement t-shirts, this exhibition will uncover the links between style and sisterhood.

In 2017 Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first ever female designer for Dior, caused a stir when her debut collection featured a simple white t-shirt with the slogan “We Should All Be Feminists”. Not long after, the Italian designer knitwear brand Missoni staged its own mini women’s march by sending dozens of models down the runway wearing the brand’s own version of pussyhats. It seemed as though out of nowhere, feminism was suddenly fashionable.

Yet, the links between modern fashion and feminism go much further back than today’s trends, as this exhibition will show.
