An exhibition dedicated to water and how it inspired different forms of creativity, including fashion, will be inaugurated on Tuesday at Rome’s Baths of Diocletian archeological site.
Curated by Gattinoni chief executive officer Stefano Dominella and fashion historian Bonizza Giordani Aragno, the exhibit is called “In acqua: H20 molecole di creatività,” or “In water: H20 molecules of creativity,” in English. It includes a range of creations from international fashion brands, such as Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Gianfranco Ferré, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Max Mara, Antonio Marras, Romeo Gigli, Ken Scott, Krizia, Issey Miyake, Martin Margiela, Junya Watanabe and Salvatore Ferragamo. Gigli’s design, for example, is made with a net used to catch lobsters.
The exhibition, which is organized with the support of the Italian Fashion Chamber, will be open to the public until June 12.
