Cradle of exceptional education, art and design expertise, the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Museum receives Dame Vivienne Westwood this year. This exclusive exhibition honors the remarkable designer with a presentation named Dress Up Story – 1990 Until Now. Combination of her absolutely avant-garde work in the Nineties, and of current collections, the museum offers a restrospective between culture, fashion and art. It is eminent that Dame Westwood’s reputation knows no limitations beyond the oceans. Leader of the punk movement, Vivienne Westwood designs cutting edge but classic pieces, reflection of her infinite imagination and influenced by an impertinent spirit. Nowadays, her designs are more subversive than ever, and invite us to a particular journey through Britain’s history. According to Vivienne Westwood, clothes express both romanticism and tragedy, modeled on a dramatic play. If the alchemy is so strong, it’s because Vivienne Westwood is working in tandem with her husband and creative partner Andreas Kronthaler. The duo has been giving to the world iconic designs for 25 years now, while living and working together.

Curator of Dress Up Story, André Leon Talley wants the exhibition to be the representation of an unconventional and eccentric party. The exhibit would be a place where people can forget who they are, dream of a parallel universe. It reflects the desire to reinvent a social crib, faithful to the brand’s inclination to always create unexpected.

The public exhibtion Vivienne Westwood, Dress Up Story – 1990 Until Now will take place from May 19th to September 13th 2015 at SCAD.
