Trame di Moda

Just landed in Venice airport and standing near baggage claim I boringly looked at ads around me and noticed that there would be fashion exhibition. So I had to write down the location and schedule to get there, perhaps! Fortunately, we had much time and N. never minded my love to fashion and beautiful dresses, so I was happy to visit Palazzo Mocenigo Museum.

Palazzo can exist without any exhibitions inside it because it is a beautiful palace with a dusty furniture and pictures, and it definitely made old dresses look even more impressive. Modern clothes looked a bit out of decorations, however even me in my 'just after beach' outfit looked fine there, so nothing could spoil it.

Exhibition offers visitors a comparison between costumes from great films that were filmed in Venice, the current fashion that drew inspiration from these films and ideas, and the valuable items of clothing preserved in the museum.

The itinerary includes the eighteenth century andrienne of Palazzo Mocenigo that converse with the dress of the clockwork doll designed by Danilo Donati for Federico Fellini’s Casanova, and the priceless reinterpretation by Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi for a historical ball at Palazzo Corsini, as well as the delicate evening gowns designed by Piero Tosi for Silvano Mangano in Death in Venice or by Sandy Powell for The Wings of the Dove that were clearly the inspiration for the most fanciful stylists today, such as Roberto Cavalli, Ermanno Scervino, Francesco Scognamiglio, and Giambattista Valli.

GFF was trying to say something I didn't understand!

It draws on nine films with a corresponding number of female models and historic periods, from Mambo and Summertime to Senso, Anonymous Venetian, Death in Venice, Casanova, The Talented Mr Ripley, The Wings of the Dove and The Tourist.

An innovative excursus to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Venice Film Festival, of which a significant part will be reserved for the great red carpet dresses from the last fifty years and the actresses who wore them: Anna Magnani, Gina Lollobrigida, Valentina Cortese, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, Paz Vega, Keira Knightley, Alba Rohrwacher, Tilda Swinton, Eva Mendes and Madonna.

Pity I couldn't take pictures of Gwyneth and Keira's dresses, but believe me, they are very beautiful. Ms Knightley's golden dress took my heart away ever since I saw it in some glossy magazine many years ago.

As well as pieces from recent and new collections, there could be found old and very old dresses which belong to Science of Fashion and Costume at the Sapienza University in Rome.

Pity I couldn't take photos of all costumes! 
Oh, and by the way it is forbidden to take photos there ;\
Exhibition is open till January 6th 2013, so if you are in Venice, it is worth every penny.

As usual, lots of love!
Get prepared for cold winter, dream of holidays and don't get lost with you lovely ones :)
