André Leon Talley is currently working to curate a museum show for the late Oscar de la Renta. The exhibit will be featured at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where Talley serves as a board member.
According to WWD, André, a longtime friend of de la Renta, spoke with the designers son, Alex Bolen, throughout the exhibit creation period. Talley says the exhibit is meant to showcase “my interpretation of Oscar’s legacy through his work and my memory of it,” rather than an exhaustive examination of Oscar de la Renta’s full catalog of accomplishments.
The new exhibit opens on February 3 and includes 70 pieces, including Taylor Swift’s Met Ball dress and the gown Hillary Clinton wore on her Vogue cover.
Following the release of the exhibit, Talley is also working on a companion volume to be released by Rizzoli in September. The companion exhibit has been titled, Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style.
