    After the success of the exhibitions Hubert de Givenchy, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Anne Valérie Hash and Iris van Herpen, the Museum of Lace and Fashion in Calais, dedicated to hand-made and mechanical lace, presents the “Haute Dentelle” (Designer Lace) exhibition.

    HAUTE COUTURE AND LACE. "Haute Dentelle" offers a unique insight into the contemporary uses by fashion designers of lace woven on Leavers looms. Implicitly, exhibition curator Sylvie Marot weaves a unique dialogue between lace houses and fashion houses, revealing behind these exchanges powerful creative propositions.

    A MATERIAL OF GREAT CREATIVE POTENTIAL. First inspired by and then liberated from hand-made lace, mechanical laces have been marrying tradition with innovation for 200 years. Synonymous with delicacy, the apparent fragility of the lace is an illusion: its woven texture makes it unravelable. A textile of high technicity, the subject of never-ending design research among lace-makers, lace has never been so multi-faceted. In infinite shades, textures, finishing techniques and embroideries, it may be transparent or opaque, with floral or abstract patterns, light or three-dimensional... to the point of becoming magnificently unrecgonizable.

    EXCEPTIONAL PIECES have been selected from thirteen fashion houses: Chanel, Christian Dior, Iris van Herpen...

    EXHIBITION CURATION : Sylvie MAROT, independent curator. Her catalogue, Anne Valérie Hash. Décrayonner, taking the eponymous title of the exhibition staged at the Museum of Lace and Fashion in 2016, was awarded the 2017 Grand Prix for Fashion Books.
