MAY 15 – OCTOBER 25, 2015
Whether floral, animal, geometric or figurative, the patterns that grace the surface of fabrics give them personality. Like textile leitmotifs, they reappear over the centuries as the art of printing evolves, pacing fashion through their use on garments and accessories.
Leitmotifs looks at the most iconic patterns by presenting nearly 100 pieces from the museum’s collection alongside creations by several Québécois guest designers: Betina Lou, Coloré Design, Niapsou Design and Travis Taddeo.
There will also be hundreds of neckties on display. Which one has your favourite pattern?
