Could the Abraham Archive be a pointer to the future?

Five contemporary fashion designers (Akris, Peter Pilotto, Diane von Furtsenberg, Dries Van Noten and Heinrich Brambilla), well-known for their exceptional use of prints, to peruse the textiles in the Abraham Archive and select those that impressed them most or best suited their personal fashion concept. They each designed a characteristic outfit onto which the fabrics they had chosen are projected.
