ELEGANZA: Italian Fashion From 1945 to Today at McCord Museum

This impressive exhibition, organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, celebrates the work of the most celebrated Italian designers, particularly following World War II. Next to numerous creations by Valentino, Armani, Fendi, Prada and many others, there will be pieces by new designers: all witnesses to the glamour of Italian fashion.

The end of World War II was a pivotal period in the development of Italian fashion. It was when Italian fashion designers started to gain a name for themselves overseas, and their efforts to showcase themselves to the world would prove to help them emerge from post-war poverty to become a leading tastemaker, turning “Made in Italy” into the mark of style.

The exhibition will trace the mechanisms and social context crucial to the Italian fashion industry’s success, from Italy’s first internationally recognized fashion shows inside the Sala Bianca of Florence’s Pitti Palace in 1952. On display there will be about 100 objects, mainly womenswear, fashion accessories and a range of photographs, drawings and film clips.
