Claudia Schif­fer of­fers a unique per­spect­ive on the dec­ade that changed fash­ion forever, as cur­at­or of ‘fash­ion pho­to­graphy from the 1990s’ at Kun­st­palast Düs­sel­dorf.

Supermodel and global fashion icon, Claudia Schiffer, takes Kunstpalast visitors on a personal journey through the fashion industry of the 1990s. In her first curated exhibition, Schiffer brings together legendary fashion photographers, designers, editors and supermodels, whose energy and vision, like her own, captivated and shaped the decade.
Approximately 120 exhibits draw upon a diverse panorama of the various aspects, characters, and places that were important in the fashion world of the time and the broader cultural sphere. Schiffer balances major photographic works, which continue to inspire and influence today’s artists and designers, with unseen and intimate material. Moving image, music and memorabilia from her private archive will reflect the dynamism and change of the era, allowing visitors to catch a glimpse behind the scenes of legendary fashion shows and afterparties.

The exhibition provides insights into a diverse world of images: the extravaganza of Arthur Elgort’s oeuvre is shown next to Corinne Day’s intimate and immediate style. Ellen von Unwerth’s sense of humour and exuberant play with sexiness, meet the sculptural and perfectly composed works by Herb Ritts. The provocative photos by Juergen Teller contrast with Karl Lagerfeld’s elegant and timeless images. Many more iconic photographers are featured in the show. Furthermore, the exhibition showcases the richness and variety of fashion media. From the billboard to the perfectly framed print, magazine pages or Polaroids, visitors will encounter images in every possible form.
