Fashion Lounge N° 1: Start of the season in the MAK Geymüllerschlössel and opening (CON)TEMPORARY FASHION SHOWCASE: Florentina Leitner

In the 2024 season of the (CON)TEMPORARY FASHION SHOWCASE—a series dedicated to the presentation of current fashion design and contemporary art with a focus on clothing in the Biedermeier atmosphere of the MAK Geymüllerschlössel—the spotlight is on the floral, feminine, and fantastic fashion world of the Austrian designer Florentina Leitner. The designer, who lives in Antwerp, is inspired by classic films and art. In addition to Lady Gaga, she has also already clad Kylie Jenner and Ellie Goulding. She is primarily known for her three-dimensional flowers, sunglasses that look as if they were inflated, and romantic looks.  
Also participating in the design of the exhibition are Alma Bektas with a floral sculpture, Sophia Stolz with wigs, as well as make-up artist Nil Stranzinger.
