This exhibition celebrates the  interconnected roles of fashion’s makers, the models who wear their designs and  the media that disseminate those looks to the world. Drawing on the rich  collection of costumes, fashion illustration and photography from the Museum of  Fine Arts in Boston, the exhibition will explore the process of creating icons  of style from design concept to runway and finished image. Fashion designers  express their creative concepts through their runway shows, and the exhibition  will feature runway pieces by John Galliano for Dior, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel,  and Olivier Theyskens for Rochas, Arnold Scaasi and Christian Lacroix.

Designers also collaborate with celebrity clients, utilizing the latter’s star  power to convey their vision. Garments worn by personalities such as Barbra  Streisand, Winona Ryder and Cate Blanchett, as they walked the red carpet in  Hollywood, will be featured in the exhibition. The final section will address  the power of fashion photography to capture and reinterpret the designer’s  vision for a worldwide audience. The exhibition will feature 15-20 dressed  mannequins, fashion illustrations and photographs that reveal the richness of  design, persona and image.

This exhibition is organized by the Museum of  Fine Arts, Boston.


Cost: Adults $25, Children (6-17) $5, Seniors (65+) $20
