What to See at Lure of Beauty
The world’s first supermodel, sketches by legends including Karl Lagerfeld, runway pics showing off the evolution of fashion – all this and more, which is right up the alley of any self-respecting stylista, is part of Lure of Beauty, an exhibition of more than 350 illustrations and fashion drawings from the collection of Martin Fervers.
We were wowed by the work of Edouard Benito, Carl Erickson, René Bouché, Rene Bouet-Willaumez, Rene Gruau and Tony Viramonte as well as vintage photographers including Edward Steichen, George Hoyningen-Huene, Cecil Beaton, Horst P. Horst and Richard Avedon.
Love your labels and the allure of vintage? Feast your eyes on drawings from the 1920s and pencil-sketches on parchment from 1930-60 that were created for iconic fashion houses from Christian Dior to Pierre Balmain.
Organised by the Department of Culture and Information, Sharjah, and the Sharjah Art Museum, Lure of Beauty is totally worth the trip to Sharjah!
