The Ephemeral Museum of Fashion

The Ephemeral Museum of Fashion exhibit will open June 13th at Pitti Uomo.

One of the most important platforms for men’s clothing and accessory collections, Pitti Uomo, will unveil a new exhibition at The Ephemeral Museum of Fashion this summer. Held in Florence’s Palazzo Pitti, the new exhibition will explore significant fashion moments in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Opening from June 13th to October 22nd 2017, it will be the first time this exhibition has been shown. In a museum noted for its original concepts of staging thematic content, the exhibition will recount moments in the history of fashion and costume and will be narrated with recent additions by the Palais Galliera.

“We are pleased to announce this new project centering on the culture of fashion,” says Andrea Cavicchi, President of the Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery and the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana (CFMI). “This is the fruit of collaboration among the foundation and two of the world’s foremost museums. An event that is important not only for Florence, in it’s effort to fortify its position at the crossroads of international fashion, but for our country’s fashion system as a whole.”

Produced by Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery and curated by Olivier Saillard, the exhibition is the second edition in a three-year program.

“For the third time in twelve months,” said Eike Schmidt, Director of the Gallerie degli Uffizi, “Palazzo Pitti is hosting an exhibition that investigates the mechanisms of fashion and reflects on its broader implications. It is a doubly important event – The Ephemeral Museum is a sterling occasion to delve into the archives to offer visitors a new perspective on the collections and the spaces of the Galleria del Costume e della Moda as it completes its process of evolution toward becoming the new Museo della Moda di Palazzo Pitti.

“For this I thank the Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery and the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana.”
