Behind the Scenes of Italian Style: Fashion Since 1945
CURATOR, 20TH CENTURY AND CONTEMPORARY FASHION, VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM
In celebration of Italian Style: Fashion since 1945 Sonnet Stanfill will discuss how she brought together this major exhibition tracing over 70 years of Italian style. Her talk will offer a curator’s-eye view into how the project was transformed from idea to physical reality and will describe the research process, the difficulty of choosing from a host of beautiful objects, and the challenges of displaying fashion in a museum. Along the way, she will highlight the exhibition’s main themes and its star objects.
Members free; non-members $20, seniors and students $17. Advance tickets available online.
This lecture will be held in the Fred and Suzanne Fields Ballroom, located in the Museum’s Mark Building, 1119 SW Park Ave.
