A state-of-the-art ensemble of 58 haute couture and prêt-à-porter dresses created by both iconic and emerging designers from 1950 on, will be on view at the Chelsea Market from June 24th through July 4th.
Presented by the Italian Trade Commission in collaboration with Unindustria and originally displayed in the evocative archaeological complex of the Trajan’s Market in Rome in 2015 , the exhibition L’Eleganza del Cibo will explore the inextricable connection between Fashion and Food, while celebrating the Made In Italy creativity in the world.
Inside the Chelsea Market – the iconic food destination for all New Yorkers – curators Stefano Dominella and Bonizza Giordani Aragno created a visual journey inspired by the contamination between fashion and food, eco-sustainability and energy. Dresses, accessories, video-mapping and visual art will create a contemporary journey to showcase the mutually inspiring connection between style and nutrition throughout the last seven decades.
Among the 58 masterfully designed dresses and accessories, the exhibition will display original creations by Giorgio Armani, Etro, Valentino, Gucci, Gattinoni, Salvatore Ferragamo, Moschino and Laura Biagiotti.Visit the Website
