I've just heard about the exhibition 'Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations' at The Met's Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition. The exhibition explores the two Italian designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada and their individual design aesthetic through their striking affinities.
The exhibition will run from May 10 to August 19, 2012. I am crossing my fingers I can get to NY during this period. Garments created by these two creatives have become iconic and pursue the idea of modernity through the ages.
