Past Event

The Perfection of Style Fashion Show

Wed Dec 7 2016

Seattle Art Museum

Brotman Forum

7 PM – 8 PM

In celebration of Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style, local designers create original fashion inspired by works in SAM's collection.

One of Saint Laurent's most famous contributions to the fashion world was the Mondrian dress in the Fall-Winter 1965 collection. Discovering the modern painter in a book given to him by his mother, Saint Laurent saw how the rhythm of color could be combined with a bold and forceful line to add shape and volume to the body.

Taking inspiration from this creative process, designers will create a look based on a work on view in SAM’s permanent collection to be showcased alongside other original designs.
