Loan to Museum at FIT
The Kent State University currently has a piece on loan to the exhibition Paris, Capital of Fashion on view at the Museum at FIT in New York City. Soirée de Paris is a beautiful black velvet dress with white satin sash and bow that was designed by Yves Saint Laurent when he worked for Christian Dior in 1955. The dress became famous from a photograph taken by Richard Avedon for Harper's Bazaar which showed the model Dovima wearing the dress surrounded by elephants. The exhibition runs through January 4, 2020.
