Impossible Conversations: Schiaparelli and Prada

This weekend I was in NYC and went to the The Metropolitan Museum to see the new exhibition Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. It is a must see with many inspirational words by both designers.. All I can say is wow.

Here is the introduction from the Met's website.
 The Met's Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, explores the    striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, the exhibition features orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work. Iconic ensembles are presented with videos of simulated conversations between Schiaparelli and Prada directed by Baz Luhrmann, focusing on how both women explore similar themes in their work through very different approaches.

Here are some of my favorite looks.
