A new couture exhibit in Rome celebrates the illustrious career of Tunisian-born designer Azzedine Alaia. Entitled 'Couture/Sculpture,' the exhibit uses the opulent interior of Galleria Borghese to showcase Alaia's designs alongside the museum's preexisting collection of masterpiece sculptures.

The 'Couture/Sculpture' exhibit includes 65 of Alaia's couture garments that span three decades. The couture exhibition is elevated through the juxtaposition of the stunning sculptures and the historical museum setting. The 'Couture/Sculpture' exhibit is on display at Rome's Galleria Borghese until October 25, 2015.

This unique couture exhibit is representative of the view of fashion as art and of the progression that goes along with it. Given the inaccessibility of most couture designs, the exhibit is a great space for fashion fans who can't afford to interact with the material in other ways.
