(10) Portrait of Yves Saint Laurent in 1964_-®Fondation Pierre Berg+® ÔÇô Yves Saint Laurent  Maurice HogenboomA museum in County Durham is playing host to the UK’s first ever Yves Saint Laurent exhibition.

The Bowes Museum is showcasing a comprehensive display of the French designer’s work at the Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal exhibition from 11th July to 25th October.

Yves Saint Laurent once said: “Fashion fades, style is eternal”. The collection on display articulates this idea and presents 50 garments from his collections, including iconic pieces from the Russian Collection, the Mondrian dresses and the Tuxedo.

The exhibition, which will highlight Yves Saint Laurent’s vision, will inhabit the first floor of the Museum including the award-winning Fashion & Textiles gallery which has previously hosted other high-profile fashion exhibitions including Vivienne Westwood Shoes, Stephen Jones Hats, Henry Poole & Co Tailoring and most recently Birds of Paradise: Plumes & Feathers in Fashion.

Yves Saint Laurent founded his own fashion house with Pierre Gerge after leading Christian Dior from 1957 to 1960. For 40 years Pierre Gerge managed the business while Yves Saint Laurent focused on the creative side. The first twelve years saw the brand develop the iconic elements of the modern woman’s wardrobe – a pea jacket and trench coat, a tuxedo, a safari jacket, a trouser suit and a jumpsuit. A selection of these outfits will be on display at the museum as well as 5,000 garments and over 15,000 accessories, providing an opportunity for fashion lovers, enthusiasts and designers to admire a piece of history.

Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal will be featured at The Bowes Museum from 11th July – 25th October 2015.
