Two weeks ago Hermès opened one of the best fashion exhibitions Hong Kong has hosted in a long time. This month-long, fantastic exhibition explores the brand’s inherent and intricate relationship with leather and is located at Hong Kong’s newest creative hub PMQ. The Leather Forever exhibition is spread over 13 rooms and showcases dozens of items from the label’s archives and workrooms. Leather hides in a multitude of colours are draped around the first room which also has a fun interactive display (see image three below) that displays the pattern of three of Hermès iconic handbags onto a leather hide. There is also a jacket designed by Jean Paul Gaultier as well as a workstation in the same room. The following rooms showcase dozens of the heritage brand’s must-have accessories such as the Kelly, horse saddles, driving gloves, luggage, travel cases, dog collars and even a motorbike covered in leather. The exhibition is full of high-tech displays and is a real visual feast, which ends on a fun note of two handbags ‘dancing’ against the backdrop of Hong Kong’s neon skyline. Only open for one more week until the 28th Sept, this is a definite must-see.

London fashionistas gathered to watch the highly anticipated ‘Models at Work’ a performance created by Olivier Saillard on Friday night. The Raphael Gallery at the V&A was a fitting dramatic location for the show as the Old Masters gazed down upon the runway and packed audience. Paris-based museum director, curator and performer Olivier Saillard worked with five renowned French models to explore the development of the poses of the fashion model. Saillard commented on his usage of famous 1980s & 1990s models that ‘modern models are really strict, like hangers’ and he wanted to show how models in the 80s had attitude.
Separated into five sections, the audience was treated to the opening of models wearing black sheaths mirroring the protective sheaths used in early 20th century fashion houses, which was quickly followed by models playing with the manifold uses of the white tunic, whose pattern reflected those worn by fashion houses in-house models. Dressed solely in black bodysuits the models mimed elegantly the actions of dressing and undressing for the third section and the fourth section joyfully explored fashion designers’s uses of calico in the design process as models ripped and reshaped calico forming new garments.
The climax of the show showcased inventive and delicate black tulle garments designed by Christian Lacroix. Lacroix looked to the silhouettes of outfits by designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier and Claude Montana for his inspiration. Not only featuring a selection o the world’s top fashion designers and models, Fashion in Motion at the V&A also involves a wide audience in the exciting and captivating catwalk experience.
