More Buzz

The fashion world cannot shut up about the Schiaparelli and Prada exhibition at the Met, which is great for female designers and will help the Costume Institute turn out another popular show. Here are some links filled with the buzz:

The NY Times discusses the heyday and uniqueness of female designers, focusing on Schiaparelli and Prada.

Zac Posen thinks Schiaparelli was a ‘bad ass.’

Judith Thurman profiles Schiaparelli and Prada in a piece for The New Yorker, focusing on their similar upbringings, differences in career, and appreciation of pretty/ugly.

Harper’s Bazaar reviews Schiaparelli’s work on its own pages.

Fashionista heard a rumor that all the Vogue editors will be wearing pink, in honor of Schiaparelli’s Shocking Pink, to the Met Ball.

Robin Givhan penned an excellent profile on Muicca Prada for The Daily Beast.

Director Baz Lurmann is directing a film starring Muiccia Prada, as herself, and Judy Davis, as Elsa Schiaparelli, according to Fashionista.

And the greatest news of all might be that the Met will be live streaming the red carpet for the Costume Institute Benefit on May 7 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. EST. No doubt, I’ll be watching.

Have you seen any other articles about the upcoming show? Will you be watching the live stream?

    I came across your website and found it very enjoyable. I just had a couple of questions so if you could e-mail me back that would be great!

    I love posts like this…that bring my attention to articles I’ve missed. I have a break coming up between semesters and just last night jotted myself a note to read a biography or autobiography of Schiaparelli. Is there one you would recommend?

      I haven’t read her autobiography, Shocking Life, but I’d start there if I were you. In fact, maybe I’ll add it to my book list too. It’d be nice to compare notes.

  3. Lizzie says:

    Shocking Life is a must read for Schiaparelli fans. I’d also try to get the Dilys E. Blum bio, Shocking! but it is a bit expensive.

    Thanks for all the links. It will be interesting to see if everyone from Vogue shows up in pink!
