Dress Sculptures: Roberto Capucci
Last Friday my friend Kharma took me to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the Roberto Capucci show. It was amazing!
Beginning his career in the 1940's, his imagination, use of materials, and attention to detail at such a young age dazzled the Italian fashion scene, even as they told him he was too young to participate. If I was a fashion designer, I would have slept in the museum to absorb all of the creativity floating around that room.
Unfortunately we couldn't take any photos, so you'll have to look at this video and research them yourself.
