The new exhibition by “fashion architect” Gianfranco Ferré was ceremonially opened in the middle of October. You will be able to see his work in the great hall of the Senate in Palazzo Madama in Turin in North Italy. You will be able to see jewels and ornaments, which represent the entire creative career of the famous Italian designer. For Ferré, ornaments and jewels were always a passion, inseparably linked with fashion. You can acquaint yourself with the results of his passionate and frequently innovative approach until 19 February.
The exhibition will present shiny stones, enamel metal polished shells, retro-ceramics, Swarovski crystals, brooches, belts, rings and bracelets. Jewels made from various materials, from wood, leather and iron, to Murano glass, copper and bronze designed by the Ferré Company, with a trace of luxurious Avant-garde. One of the designs, originally in bronze, will also be repdroduced as a 3D printed copy, which you can purchase in the museum shop. And the cherry on top? There will be many cherries, for instance 8 unique luxurious Ferré dresses!

The opulent beauty of the items designed by the master from unusual materials is emphasised in contrast to the luxurious historic surroundings.
