The Fashion and Textile Museum will host a major new exhibition: MISSONI, ART, COLOUR, in partnership with The Woolmark Company. Organised by the MA*GA Art Museum, it will open in London on 6 May 2016.

The exhibition, previously held at MA*GA Art Museum in Gallarate, Italy, explores the influence of 20th century European art on the fashion and textile designs of Ottavio and Rosita Missoni. It is curated by Luciano Caramel, Art Critic, Luca Missoni, Artistic Director of the Missoni Archive and Emma Zanella, Director of MA*GA Art Museum and Contemporary Art Historian and Museologist.

MISSONI, ART, COLOUR includes over 40 paintings by European artists from the 20th century, such as Gino Severini, Lucio Fontana and Sonia Delaunay, who have influenced the creative process of Missoni over the course of its long creative, cultural and artistic journey. The works of art on display are drawn from the MA*GA Museum and from private collections in Italy with many have never been previously shown in the UK. The exhibition showcases a large selection of looks created since1953 by Rosita Missoni and from 1997 by Angela Missoni as well as previously unseen textile studies, paintings and arazzi by Ottavio Missoni. Merino wool is featured in the majority of the garments on display, showcasing the heritage and cultural history of the Missoni family’s association with wool.
