On Friday I attended the opening to the Little Black Dress exhibition at the SCAD Museum of Art. Curated by Andre Leon Talley, the exhibition showcased approximately 80 garments that were designed by fashion legends such as Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford. The exhibit also displayed dresses designed by SCAD graduates and a SCAD professor.
What I found the most interesting at the exhibit is that they included designs from SCAD students. It pushed the mindset that SCAD wants its students to have; it is possible to have your work among such amazing designers if you work hard. There was a large number of students that came out to the opening, most of them dressed at their best. I decided to wear my personal favorite “Little Black Dress” that I own, who was designed by Ann Demeulemeester.
My favorite designs that were on display were two beautiful evening gowns. One was designed by Tom Ford and has been worn by Lady Gaga, and the other was a lace nude lined dress designed by Stella McCartney. The Tom Ford dress was both embroidered and lace, and it was so inspiring to be able to see such a beautiful dress up close. The Stella McCartney piece was also very impressive. The one long-sleeve shoulder and the nude lining was both sexy and chic.
