Met Museum 2012: Impossible Conversations With Elsa Schiaparelli And Miuccia Prada

  • Pin it

Are you ready, my dahlings? Fashion’s Oscars are just an arm stretch away and I’m really excited to see the Red Carpet! Especially since the Met Museum announced that, for the first time since 1948, the arrivals of the much esteemed guests will be streamed live on its website! How amazing is that? Regular Oscars, I told you!

An avant – gout of Metropolitan Museum’s new exhibition: 2012 brings us “Impossible Conversations”. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubia’s “Impossible Interviews” from Vanity Fair (back from the 1930s), the new exhibition simulates conversations between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada organized in seven themed galleries.

The new exhibition is available through August 19, 2012 and, after the jump, you’ll see fragments of grace torn right from the above mentioned galleries plus a really interesting presentation video.

With strange names like Waist Up / Waist Down, Ugly Chic, Hard Chic, Naif Chic, The Classical Body, The Exotic Body, The Surreal Body, the new Met Museum exhibition promises to be not just interesting and fashion – comprehensive but also very important since it celebrates the work of two women designers. The presentation video below is a great introduction to Met’s 2012 exhibition, so if you have a good 15 minutes to spend, don’t hesitate in pressing play! (don’t forget to tune in here if you want to watch the live stream!)
