Forum  Düsseldorf will present the exhibition entitled:

Alaïa. Azzedine Alaϊa in the 21st century. 

This exhibition displays the most fantastic Alaïa fashion

creations of the last ten years. Each room in the exhibition

will focus on a different material that Azzedine Alaïa has

consistently used over the past decade: velvet, fur, wool,

leather, cotton, animal skins, chiffon and knitwear.


Azzedine Alaïa is one of the last major living couturiers. The exhibition

focuses on Alaia’s work in the 21st Century. Tunisian-born Azzedine

Alaïa is one of the most important fashion designers of the last decades.

The name Alaïa stands for glamour, sensuality, style, cut, self-confidence,

comfort and, of course, sex appeal. His tight dresses embrace the bodies

of the world’s most seductive and successful women.


The exhibition Alaïa. Azzedine Alaïa in the 21st century has been

compiled by curator Mark Wilson and Groninger Museum, the

exhibits have been provided by Azzedine Alaïa.
