United in Diversity - Special Exhibition accompanying the LIFE BALL 2019The Imperial Furniture Collection is holding a four-month special exhibition displaying costumes and accessories from this year’s Style Bible on the subject of “United in Diversity”.
“United in Diversity” is an exhibition accompanying the Life Ball 2019. It is the first, exclusive presentation of costumes and accessories from the Style Bible of this year’s Life Ball.
The costumes shown are inspired by the gaudy world of the circus. Some of them were created in the Life Ball studio with the help of pupils of the Herbststrasse Fashion School, others were provided by ART for ART and adapted. Patricia Field, who made a name for herself with the décor and the extraordinary look of “Sex and the City”, has made her debut as designer of the colourful costumes of Life Ball ambassadors, including well-known international figures such as Dita Von Teese, Alan Cumming, and Cynthia Nixon.
The strongly contrasting costumes of this year’s Life Ball are presented to the visitors like in a wax museum. A 400 m2 showroom was divided into black and white halves. The two halves stand for “light and darkness”, “inside and outside”, and are supposed to visualise the segregation still prevalent in our society today.
Join us on a journey over the rainbow!
