Fredrik Robertsson is one of very few men who custom orders hand-sewn creations from Parisian haute couture houses. The exhibition showcases some of his most spectacular garments from leading fashion houses including Alexis Mabille, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda, JeanPaul Gaultier, Iris van Herpen, Stéphane Rolland, Schiaparelli, Valentino,Viktor & Rolf and Vivienne Westwood, as well as from experimental designers such as Casey Curran, Richard Quinn and Robert Wun.
Since the mid 19th century, the haute couture houses of Paris have been creating high-end, hand-sewn fashion – exclusively for women. Today, a transformation of this traditional art genre is under way. A new generationof designers have taken over as artistic directors and a new category of expressive clients have discovered the highest level of fashion.
The exhibition is curated by fashion journalist Susanna Strömquist in collaboration with Fredrik Robertsson for Liljevalchs and will be the first to be shown in all exhibition halls at Liljevalchs+.
