Gone with the wind, 22 March 2008 - 22 November 2008

The exhibition 'Gone with the Wind' in the Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen shows work by Dutch designers of fashion, jewellery and accessories, stylists, photographers and illustrators. Together they give an inspiring picture of the wealth of ideas latent in the Dutch world of fashion and how it relates to the Dutch dress tradition. The renowned fashion designers Alexander van Slobbe and Francisco van Benthum act as guest curators. Viviane took care of the publicity image and her work is part of the general exhibition.

In 'Gone with the Wind' the creative ideas of the Dutch world of fashion are central. In a unique way this exhibition combines contemporary designs with traditional costumes and objects from the Museum collection. At twenty locations in the Museum and the Museum Park, new and old designs visualize typically Dutch themes, such as the 'Orange' festivities in honour of the Royal Family and the use of bright floral patterns in traditional costumes. In the Bontekoe's Cabin Boys room, Dutch designers of men's fashion such as Francisco van Benthum, Lucas Ossendrijver (Lanvin) and Ivo Mittelmeyer display a modern vision on tradional men's wear. In the Staphorst Drama room designer Mark Lentelink presents garments from traditional costume and from the international world of fashion where folding is central, as it once was in Staphorst. Illustrators Piet Paris and Peter Jeroense have designed variations on the typically Dutch tile. Additionally for this exhibition, the museum has extended its fashion and textile collection by permanently acquiring ten new outfits by the designer duo Spijkers en Spijkers.
