Conversation Piece

Elsa Schiaparelli & Miuccia Prada

















If you are lucky enough to be spending some time in New York this summer, then a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute exhibition is a must for all fashion fans.


This year's event, which opens today, features the work of the Italian designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada.  The exhibition has been arranged across seven themed galleries, and focuses on the similarities in the work of the two iconic women who are both known for their defining roles in fashion.   


'Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations' runs until 19th August.


A hardback book has also been published to accompany the exhibition.  Click here for details.
