Pop Art Fabrics & Fashion - From Warhol To Westwood

Exhibition, TextielMuseum, Tilburg, Netherlands.

Until November 20, 2016
In the 1950s, a wave of American rock ‘n’ roll and youth culture swept the world. The mix of popular images and music with art and fashion changed the way people dressed and behaved. Inspired by Pop Art, many young designers developed exciting new patterns for textiles and wallpaper.
Even renowned pop artists such as Andy Warhol and internationally acclaimed fashion designers including Mary Quant, Pierre Cardin, and Vivienne Westwood designed spectacular pop textiles for fashion and furnishings.
From designs featuring rock stars and soup cans to the psychedelic patterns and punk outfits of the 1960s and 70s, they found an eager following, especially among the adventurous younger generation. The exhibition displays more than 200 textile and fashion designs.
