CREATING A MORE HUMAN FUTURE
We are delighted to announce that Phoebe has been asked to feature as a designer and showcase pieces from her archive collections in the first edition of new cultural exhibition 'Homo Faber' in Venice, Italy. Founded by Italian gallerist Jean Blanchaert and acclaimed architect Stefano Boeri, the exhibition pays homage to artisinal and luxury craftmanship, with a focus on European artistry. The exhibition runs for 2 weeks, this year 14th - 30th September and will be held at Fondazione Giorgio Cini, which houses the 16th-century San Giorgio monastery on San Giorgio Maggiore island.
Hosted by the Michelangelo Foundation, admission is free, welcoming all to explore and celebrate the works of master artisans. Curated by Judith Clark, the fashion section is presented in a mosaic-tiled former public swimming pool. Phoebe's work from her 2012 collections sits alongside archives from designers including Azzedine Alaïa, Chloe and Hussein Chalayan.
