Roberto Capucci (b. 1930) is more artist than designer with his innovations in silhouette, line and color. His lively "dress sculptures" will be on exhibit (for the first time in the US) beginning next week at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. You can peruse 80 of his gowns spanning nearly 50 years of his career. I'm going to have to make it up there one of these days. Wowza.
"Art into Fashion" is on at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from March 16 through June 5; tickets are $22 here.
