SCAD FASH is known to have some of the best exhibitions in Atlanta year in and year out and 2023 is no different. The newest exhibition highlights the works of Madame Gres. The exhibition honors the legendary work of that Madame Gres became well known for – draping. SCAD FASH is the first institute to display the designers work in the US in nearly a decade and a half.
The Art of Draping will showcase over 70 gowns and ensembles by Madame Gres. The dresses on display range from the 1930s to the 1980s. Madame Gres work could be seen in Alais unique collection. Visitors will get a first hand look at evening and day gowns as well as tailored ensembles that she worked on. Guests will also get to view never before seen pieces of vintage prints from Fondation Azzedine Alaïa and rare images of Madame Grès taken by the iconic photographer Horst P. Horst.
This is the third exhibition in collaboration with Fondation Azzedine Alaïa. Visitors will have the pleasure of viewing the talented works of Madame Gres and Azzedine Alaia until June 2023.
