As someone who loves both art and fashion, I didn’t want to miss seeing the Karl Lagerfeld exhibition even if the options were to go on the last day and in the rain. Karl Lagerfeld was both a controversial figure and a genius designer, although you would not know from viewing this exhibition, which focused on the latter. This brings to question what exactly should be the role of museums in storytelling. Do they not have a responsibility to present the entire profile of an artist? Does society not benefit from knowing both the art and the artist?….
If you plan to be in New York before November 28 stop by the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) located at 227 West 27th Street and take a peek at its latest exhibition on the influence and impact the “Rose” flower has had in the fashion world as far back as 1700. A combination of the eccentric with the classic, wonderfully done. and worthy of a visit.
