On 5 May, the first retrospective exhibition on the history of the ERKI Fashion Show will open in the Tallinn Department Store’s display cases lining Estonia pst. The exhibition presents the most fascinating part of the items that have graced the runway over the last 30 years. A TV screen displays 24 hours’ worth of unforgettable footage.
The exhibition design team include EAA students Aleksandre Valetto, Sidney Lepp, Kristel Akerman, Epp Voolma, Eliise Proos, Hanna Saagpakk and fashion enthusiasts Mattis Rump ning Marilin Assafrei. The supervisors are Piret Puppart and Marit Ahven.
The exhibition is an introduction to the ERKI Fashion Show, which will be held this year for the 30th time on 27 May, followed by a fashion industry conference with international presenters on 28 May. A book, ERKI Fashion Show 30, will also be published.
The retrospective will be supplemented with a special collection created by now-legendary designers for the anniversary show. It will be on display in the Naistemaailm (women’s department) of the Tallinn Department Store. The exhibition will run until 13 June.
