Dressed by Design
Public Reception: December 7, 2017 from 6 – 8 p.m.
November 17, 2017 – March 18, 2018
Giorgio Armani, Alexander McQueen, Ralph Lauren, and Fran Keuling-Stout – three “haute couture” fashion designers and one woman who was their customer bring the world of fashion to William King Museum of Art. The couturier takes the occupation of designing clothes to an art form. Only a few of their customers possess the personal flair that takes the art of dressing to the same level. The designers featured in Dressed by Design are well-known names, but their stylish customer from Big Stone Gap, Virginia, is known only to a few. This exhibition joins them together, the designers and the patron, for a glimpse into the realm of clothes where art, style, and fashion are fused into one.
Dressed by Design is sponsored in part by Powell Valley National Bank.
