Berlin’s Museum for Communication is known for its family-friendly, multimedia exhibitions. Its latest, however, might garner a few fans from the fashion world. Fashion Talks looks at the unspoken language of garments, patterns, and trends — from creation to marketing. Visitors can decode uniforms and suggest a new sub-culture at a cleverly designed faux “Office for Youth Cultures” complete with official forms, while hands-on types have the chance to distress jeans and design their own tartans.
On display are looks from Vivienne Westwood, Kenzo, Lanvin, Junya Watanabe, Henrik Vibskov, Kuyichi, Diesel, True Religion and more. The end of the exhibition features a showcase for young designers from the region that will change monthly. January’s star is Berlin-based Danish men’s wear innovator Mads Dinesen. Also, as a bonus, the photo exhibit Fashion Food shows what happens when a star chef and a fashion photographer team up: kitchen couture. — SUSAN STONE
