When Fashion is Art

Put "art, architecture, and nature" [from the PMA write up] together with an aura of modernity and you're getting close to describing Italian designer Roberto Capucci's designs.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is hosting an exhibition of his work from March 16-June 5 and, yes, I'll be attending.

The dress to the right is called Nove Gonne [Nine Skirts] was designed in 1956 - pretty forward thinking, isn't it.

Fashion, Art, whatever you want to call it, I think it's yummy!
