Alexandra Exter’s innOvations in the art of costume  

By Melnyk Myroslav Tarasovich,
assistant Professor, Ph. D.,
Kiev Institute of decorative arts and design named after Mychailo Boychuk

The majority of researchers called Alexander Exter the founder of Ukrainian Cubo-futurism: its logic, colours, emotion developed European cubism and futurism on Ukrainian national basis.
In Ukraine, Alexandra Exter traveled from village to village, collecting samples of folk art. On the basis of this material he made designs for fabrics, garments, shawls and scarves. The influence of Ukrainian art in her works is felt not at the level of interpretations, but at the level of attitude.


Exter’s experiments in the field of theatrical costume and body art were innovative: with the geometrization of forms, colors, the effects of the dynamics and emphasis on the frame elements she created the quintessential images of the characters.

Exter also created fashionable suits, taking an active part in the work of the Moscow “Atelier”. She participated in exhibitions and competitions, publishing her sketches and articles in magazines – doing her own variant of the most fashionable in the 1920s “Art Deco” style. With her extravagant combined colors, materials, details, Exter often ahead of its time.


At the beginning of XXI century V. Exter reconstructed in Lilia Pustovit collection of apparel and accessories “Aelita” (2008). Her works inspire many young designers and her main principle – “more creativity and less provincialism” is relevant not only for modeling of the costume, but for the entire Ukrainian contemporary art.

Thierry Mugler fashion sketches for Grand Show at Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin

Thierry Mugler

The Grand Show “WYLD” at Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin was directed by Manfred Thierry Mugler – the scriptwriter, stage director, photographer and perfumer. He is also responsible for the creation of all costumes, and co-wrote the script with Roland Welke. This larger-than-life show was a cosmic love story: he is a young BMX rider who has his feet firmly planted on the ground, she is a fierce woman living at the top of the Berlin TV tower with her head in the clouds. This is the story of how two souls separated by an infinite distance, finally meet.

Thierry Mugler:

THE WYLD includes all Berlin’s positive vibrations: energy, modernity, timelessness and culture. These are the feelings that I wanted to share through my show, and I wanted it to be spectacular. The Palast is the only place where such a concept could take place, the only venue that could host such a project. The largest stage in the world for an other-worldly show.”
