The year 2021 celebrates the symbolic 30th anniversary of the Vilnius Academy of Arts Department of Fashion Design (formerly Costume Design). Exhibition "Fashion Design Stories" exposes the behind-the-scenes creative path and career of the graduates and the professors since 1991 up to now. The artworks and stories presented introduce a wide range of fashion design activities and opportunities.
The exposition is telling a fashion story, which encompasses fashion design works of various tastes, genres and generations, reflecting current events and trends of different years. The exhibition is designed to show the wide variety of expressions of fashion design, the possible differences in attitudes towards fashion design, which are united by the still-sounding impulse of academic creativity.
