Art History Talk: Elsa Schiaparelli

November 14 @ 11:30 AM

Elsa Schiaparelli (Italian, 1890-1973)

Collection of Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation

Schiaparelli did not move up from within the ranks of the Parisian fashion world.  Instead, she stormed its barriers.  As a woman, an Italian immigrant, and someone who did not even sew, she relied on brilliant innovation and a flamboyant personality to keep her designs in the public eye.  Her friendship with the Surrealists enabled her to inject high art into haute couture.
