Fabric is everything
A great exhibition about the excellence of Prato textile manifacturing
11/3/2012 - 9/9/2012
The title, a quotation from the great master of style Yohji Yamamoto, is a declaration of love for fabric, the raw material and key element of quality and beauty in any fashion product.
This belief has led the Prato Textile Museum to develop this tribute to the excellence of its manufacturing district, proposing the latest results in research and innovative technology, creativity and style within the museum space.
Over 200 fabrics are displayed in a playful and dreamy exhibition in the former industrial area of the Cimatoria Campolmi, which has been transformed for the occasion into a kind of modern "wonder room" that immerses visitors in an all-encompassing world of materials and colors.
In fourteen macro installations developed especially for this exhibit, the variety and rich creativity of the fabrics is enhanced through their installation, taking on the form and importance of works of contemporary art.
The ticket is included in the Museum entrance.
