Don’t you love an unexpected surprise? I didn’t expect to be so blown away at the amazing talent and creativity I saw at the current Yves Saint Lurent show at the Seattle Art Museum. All from a boy who started by making paper dolls for his sisters.
The details were stunning. From the process to the fabrics, what a feast for the eyes. Beautiful beadwork, and sequins for days. And, a fantastic retrospective of his work from a young child, young designer, to a haute couture designer and the name he has made for himself today. Throw in some Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, lunch at a French cafe and good girlfriends, and it shaped up to be one phenomenal day!
If your close go and see this show. You will love it!
A beautiful thick fabric with Andy Warhol just behind.
And, gorgeous drawings.
Hats, hats, hats!
An eye for the eclectic.
More stunning beading.
And, a look at collections by color coding.
And, the visit wasn’t complete without a stop at the gift shop dedicated to fashion.
