Surrealism remains a great inspiration for the fashion world. Designers embraced the ideals and aesthetics of such creative geniuses as Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, Rene Magritte and Man Ray. With fun, amusing and extraordinary creations, they quickly began to unstitch the institutionalized notions of fashion, adding imagination, color and scandal to this ancient trade. Fashion & Surrealism is a testament to the fruitful infatuation that fashion has had with Surrealism, an infatuation that is still very visible in the works of contemporary designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier and Serge Lutens.
