The Bowes Museum, a French Chateau in Northern England, has just announced its upcoming fashion exhibition featuring the work of the great fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.

The artist was famous for merging fine art with fashion in his work — an example being his Mondrian collection, which was a tribute to the paintings of De Stijl artist Piet Mondrian.
