Exhibition, FIT New York, USA, until 18 April.
Celebrated here are the two designers who defined the sexy and glamorous fashions of the 1970s. This is the first exhibition to juxtapose their work and analyse the way they dealt with similar themes and aesthetics during the height of their careers. Both designers are equally represented by the approximately 80 ensembles and 20 accessories that are arranged thematically in an environment designed to evoke the style of this singular, dynamic era in history. The presentation offers a unique perspective on two of the bestknown fashion designers in modern history.
