To celebrate Bal Harbour’s 50th anniversary, “Fashion Project” developed FP04: The Anniversary. The exhibition will be running until January 20th, 2016 and is made up of collections curated by Judith Clark. The collection will consist of “fifty years in fashion history from 1965, when Bal Harbour Shops launched, to the present, taking its cue from the unique incorporation of landscape into the design of the retail center.”
The finale of FP04: The Anniversary will be taking place over the course of January 28th-31st with a four-day film festival, “50 + 50: A Century of Fashion.” The films were curated by Tom Gunning, professor of art history and cinema at the University of Chicago, and by Marketa Uhlirova, director of Fashion in Film, a research and education project based at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. The theme is fashion-based, telling the story of how fashion came about and where it is headed.
The importance of fashion should never be forgotten and through this event, attendees will relive the last 50 years of Bal Harbour Shops in preparation for the new groundbreaking moments that await us.
