Have you heard all the buzz about the Met’s new costume institute exhibit? “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” looks like an incredible collection. The exhibit pairs two talented Italian fashion designers, Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada. Though from different era’s and focusing on different forms of the human body, these two women were both avid feminists, innovators, and artists. Both turned out some amazing pieces to be sure. Brent and I saw the Alexander McQueen exhibit last year when we were visiting New York. I was honestly blown away. I’d love to go back and add this experience to my 2012 summer. This well-written NY Times article paints a very lovely picture.
