4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Circles of Support members are invited to join Dennita Sewell, the Jacquie Dorrance Curator of Fashion Design, for an exclusive Circles curator-led tour of A Tribute to James Galanos.
A retrospective dedicated to the iconic American fashion designer, A Tribute to James Galanos features more than 40 couture-quality, ready-to-wear ensembles and accessories, including an ensemble worn and donated by former First Lady Nancy Reagan, the exhibition will illuminate the designer’s influence and legacy with objects from the 1950s through the 1990s.
“A black dress,” Galanos once said, “reveals everything: line, cut, drape, seaming. It must be perfection.” From his selection of the finest fabrics to his impeccable construction and finishing, the designer’s exacting standards resulted in an elegant simplicity that became a hallmark of his work.
