The Yves Saint Laurent ‘Style is Eternal‘ exhibition was launched last night with a party for invited guests within the grandeur of the French Chateau styled Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle in County Durham.
The exhibition of classic Yves Saint Laurent designer clothing is appearing in the United Kingdom for the first time after being brought over from Paris and presented fifty items including some of the fashion designers most iconic garments from the Russian Collection, the Mondrian dresses and the Tuxedo.
The legendary French designer launched his own fashion house with co-owner and partner Pierre Berge in 1962 and became a major influence in the fashion world. He retired in 2002 and died in 2008. Pierre Berge (pictured below) formerly opened the exhibition which runs at the museum until 25 October.
