As so often happens in fashion, designers have foreshadowed cultural events so that the sexualisation and exoticism of flowers are already on the runways.
The Resort collections, which will be in stores in late autumn, are full of larger-than-life flowers, digitally printed to enable the patterns to follow the curve and stretch of the female torso or to wrap around the body.
Masterworks from MoMA will feature close to 150 works, including some never before seen in Australia. Artists on the line-up include Paul Cézanne, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Edward Hopper, Jeff Koons, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Lyubov Popova, Mark Rothko and Vincent van Gogh. The exhibition will take over the entire ground floor of the St Kilda Road gallery and span 130 years of modern-art history.
