Nathon Kong at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
The exhibit was curated by the world-renown designer Thierry Mugler in conjunction with the Thierry Mugler: Couturissime exhibit, which highlights Thierry Mugler's career and the beautiful creations he's made over the decades.
Who is Thierry Mugler?
Nathon Kong & Thierry Mugler at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art
Thierry Mugler's fashion shows have been some of the most magnificent of the century. His costume designs are sexy and creative, often combining elements of high fashion with science fiction and fantasy. It is no wonder that he has designed costumes for prominent productions, such as the Comédie-Française's Shakespeare productions and Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity. He has also designed outfits for some of the greatest and most extraordinary celebrities of our time, including David Bowie, Diana Ross, and Beyoncé, as well as prominent Québec personalities like Céline Dion.
Couture in Montreal
An exhibit celebrating Montreal fashion design
Montreal is home to many talented fashion designers producing fantastic and timeless work. Choosing just 10 designers to represent the rich fashion culture in the city must have been nearly impossible.
Among the other talented designers participating in the event with Nathon Kong were Philippe Dubuc, Denis Gagnon, Ying Gao, Helmer Joseph, Marie-Ève Lecavalier, MARKANTOINE, Atelier New Regime, Fecal Matter, and Marie Saint Pierre.
