Celebs adore Carolina Herrera’s stunning style. This organza strapless gown was worn by actress Emmy Rossum at the 2014 Met Gala.
Celebrating the 35th anniversary of House of Herrera, the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film is showcasing more than 75 pieces from Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera’s lifetime of work. Herrera, a favorite among fashion’s elite, debuted her first collection at the Metropolitan Club in New York in 1981 thanks to the encouragement of former Vogue editor Diana Vreeland. Since then, the couture icon has garnered attention from both fashion critics and celebrities alike, with notable clients ranging from Taylor Swift to Michelle Obama. She even designed character Bella’s wedding dress in the Twilight: Breaking Dawn film. The exhibition, dubbed Refined Irreverence, highlights past and present designs, from Herrera’s inaugural collection to some of her most current creations. Visitors can expect to see a bevy of styled vignettes featuring printed gowns with timeless silhouettes, a signature of Herrera’s distinctive and effortless style. Curated by Rafael Gomes, SCAD director of fashion exhibitions, the exhibit includes daywear, bridal and red-carpet looks, pieces straight off the runway, plus ensembles from the designer’s personal collection. Grab a piece of the posh action now through Sept. 25. Dressed to impress, indeed. $10, @scadfash
