First Class Fashionista is very excited to be one of the first to help announce the Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective exhibit coming to the Denver Art Museum from March 25-July 8, 2012. The Denver Art Museum has partnered with Fondation PierreBergé-Yves Saint Laurent to showcase the revolutionary accomplishments of Yves Saint Laurent, the designer who anticipated the gender revolution and changed the fashion world with his menswear-inspired clothing for women—The inventor of the Tuxedo for her!
The only venue in the United States to host the Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective exhibit, which first debuted in Paris a year ago at Le Petit Palais museum, DAM invites you to an unforgettable, interactive fashion experience.
“We’re really excited that this is coming to Denver. We have a history of bold exhibitions here at the museum. We also have a creativity of platforms; so we not only want our visitors to see stunning works of art on our walls, we want them to try their hands at the creative processes behind them. So we are going to have a fashion studio. Visitors can touch fabric, try their hands at designing, drape on a dress mold. It will be an exciting time at the Denver Art Museum,” says Ashley Pritchard, Communication Director at the Denver Art Museum.
Starting with Saint Laurent’s early Dior designs from 1958 to the stunning YSL ball gown collection of 2000, the historical backdrop of the exhibit will be thematically arranged to capture your imagination and take you on a journey of 40 years of revolutionary fashion. The exhibit will include photos, sketches, film, as well as the fashion studio (mentioned above).
