A Museum of Fashion and Costume was created Tuesday in Florence with the signature of an agreement between the management of the Uffizi Gallery and Pitti Immagine Discovery, the foundation including Pitti Immagine and the Florentine center for Italian fashion.

The objective is to start a three-year program of events dedicated to contemporary fashion. The season will officially begin with an exhibit of photos shot by iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, which will open on June 14 during the Pitti Uomo international trade fair, through October 23, 2016. The exhibit, called 'Vision of Fashion', will showcase 200 photos and fashion reports authored by Lagerfeld, including a self-portrait. The museum will also host an exhibit in 2017 showcasing the gallery's archives, organizers said.
