Posted by on May 9, 2012 in Video Blog | No Comments

Metropolitan Museum of Art for an exhibition from May 10 to August 19,2012 organized by Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton, The Costume Institute
The exhibition explores the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias’s “Impossible Interviews” for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, the exhibition features orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work. Iconic ensembles are presented with videos of simulated conversations between Schiaparelli and Prada directed by Baz Luhrmann, focusing on how both women explore similar themes in their work through very different approaches.




Impossible Conversations by and for the The Costume Institute.
