Culture Map: Italian Style, Fashion Since 1945
Culture Map is everywhere Nordstrom is, mapping out the best in arts, events and happenings.
Impeccable tailoring. Inspired design. Industrious creativity. These are a few of the many traits that make up the DNA of the best Italian fashion houses. We’re proud to present two U.S. exhibitions organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London that explore the work of Italy’s most iconic couturiers from the end of World War II until today.
If you’re in the Portland or Nashville area, get up close with some gorgeous examples of women’s fashion and menswear created by the greats and worn by the enviable likes of Audrey Hepburn and Princess Stanislaus Radziwill at Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball. Read on for more images and exhibition details.
Italian Style: Fashion Since 1945 is on view at the Portland Art Museum through May 3, and at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts June 5 through September 7. Pucci, Valentino, Fendi, Versace—to us, these names will go down in history alongside other Italian classics like Dante Alighieri, Michaelangelo and Antonio Stradivari.
