Event Description

Using the six personality types of a queen-Sage, Enchantress, Explorer, Mother Earth, Heroine, and Thespian-the exhibition explores how designers like Alexander McQueen, Joanne Petit-Frère, Hideki Seo, Gucci, Chromat, and Vivienne Westwood use their work to create a space for contemplating the relationship between dress, society, and our shared history.

A Queen Within highlights a broad range of designers-from the internationally famous to the currently emerging-resulting in a deep inquiry into the diverse nature of the feminine. Gowns, wigs, shoes, and photographs are presented in immersive environments rich in symbolism, inviting visitors to peer into the private worlds of deeply powerful feminine figures.
