The Bowes Museum in County Durham is hosting an exhibition of the work of legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.

It's the first major showing of Laurent's work in the UK and runs from July 11 to October 25.

Pierre Bergé, President of the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent said: The Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent is committed to the promotion of the work of Yves Saint Laurent internationally, and as such it is extremely exciting to work on this first exhibition in the UK.

"The Bowes Museum is a natural destination given its exceptional work with fashion and textiles; the museum and its location also clearly reflects Yves Saint Laurent’s and my own passion for inspiring, timeless places. It is the perfect setting for us – a museum built as a French Chateau, in the age of the Second Empire."
