The Dress Exhibition The Dress by Hamza Mejri

The Dress Exhibition

I’m proud to present my latest project, THE DRESS, an impressive new exhibition of limited edition fashion photographs that captures spectacular moments with more than twenty Montreal celebrities and fashion designers. A dress is a unisex garment that covers shoulders, legs and the body, all in one piece. Throughout human history, every civilization has distinguished itself with a particular dress style having a specific design or a distinct colour palette. The Dress dramatically covers many styles of dresses inspired by various nations, cultures and empires (Roman, Berber, Japanese, African, Arabic, etc.), transporting you through the ages from antiquity to modernity.
After days of shooting over fifty models, forty stunning photographs were selected. Each photograph in The Dress tells a story about a civilization and a time, with the dress representing a link to past lives and artistic visions. I’m inspired by Karl Lagerfeld, Lagerfeld’s way of working, his creations and his photography has set the standard for my work. His ‘The Little Black Jacket’ exhibition was one of the biggest inspirational sources for my work.
Unlike classic fashion photography, the dresses are not being showcased only by mannequins. Here, Montreal artists from diverse disciplines are the models, including: musicians Les Jumelles Barabé, Amylie, and Marco Calliari; fashion designers Evelyne Fay of White Label, Julie Bessette, Luca Galardo of Diodati, Zaida Melo, Emeline Morellet of Les Incompetents and Habi Gerba of Gazelles Montréal; television hosts Angelo Cadet, Cindy Charles; actor Sarah Dagenais Hakim; as well as painters, fashion models, dancers and photographers.
