What would movie stars be without glamorous outfits and the costumes that transform them into characters? From the 1920s to the 1960s, the Swiss René Hubert belonged to the crème de la crème of costume designers in Hollywood and Europe. The versatile designer also worked for musical theater and fashion houses, as well as designing uniforms for Swissair flight attendants. This is the first exhibition of his life’s work.
