New Year - new resolutions. One of my own - more active cultural activities: visiting exhibitions, attending in the theater and concerts. Of course, some of the overviews of fashion events will be shared here, with you. That is why I am presenting my 2018 list of exhibitions I want to see. Maybe it will be useful for you too!
The first, which has already been brightly marked on my agenda, is the "Beyond Seeing" exhibition in Paris on January 19-28. In regards to Fashion Week, it is organized by Goethe and French fashion institutes. Designed by students from France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, or the blind people, fashion and design will be presented innovatively. Here, you will be invited to explore the fashion not with your eyes, but with your hands, nose, and ears. It will also host various studios, performances, and artistic presentations. I believe that this exhibition is worth paying attention to its originality. In addition, it begins at the same time as the Who's Next International Fashion Show, so it's a great opportunity to visit both. For more information on the "Beyond Seeing" exhibition in Paris, see La Villette at https://lavillette.com/en/evenement/beyond-seeing
I still don't know if I will be able to visit it, but the "Fashioned From Nature" exhibition in London's V&A Museum is very intriguing, and I have a great desire to see it. Why? Because it's the first UK fashion show, exploring sophisticated fashion and nature relationships from 1600 to the present. It will showcase 300 unique fashion trends, such as Greenpeace t-shirts or dresses made from recycled grates. It will be possible to get acquainted with new materials and their dyeing tools. In this exhibition, I am sure, the fashion and nature connection will be well revealed. "The Fashioned From Nature" exhibition will be held from April 21, 2018, to January 2019, at the London V&A Museum. More information at https://www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/fashioned-from-nature
And if you have the opportunity to go to New York (or maybe you live there?), the "Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color" exhibition should have a nice dazzling pink force. For me, this show looks really interesting as it will explore the importance of the pink color in the last three decades. Sometimes pink is associated with virginity, childhood, sometimes with vulgarity, but it can also reflect political convictions or power. Maybe a decade ago you, like me, asked yourself is it ok to wear a bright pink dress for a mature woman? If so, you will find answers in the FIT Museum. This exhibition starts from 2018 September 7 until 2019 January 5th. More information at http://news.fitnyc.edu/event/exhibition-pink-the-history-of-a-punk-pretty-powerful-color-closes
And, of course, again in Paris, Galleria Museum will present the first retrospective of the Belgian designer Martin Margiela. It will review the creator's work from 1989 to 2009. I'll admit Martin Margiela is not the designer I'm crazy about. But his anonymous work and various attempts to transform the already existing item or garment into another one are still relevant and intriguing. For this alone, I think I will be attending an exhibition of "Margiela / Galliera, 1989-2009" which will take place from March 3, 2018, to July 15, at the Gallier Museum in Paris.

These are the main exhibitions about fashion that I would like to see, but I know that in the year there will be other, perhaps smaller and less important but worthy attention. When I visit them, I will write my feedback to you as well.
