This exhibit brings together the work of two iconic names of cutting-edge Italian fashion from two different eras: Elsa Schiaparelli, who died in 1973, and current fashion mogul Miuccia Prada. Director Baz Luhrmann created eight short films in which the women—Judy Davis (The Starter Wife) plays Schiaparelli—discuss their provocative designs alongside more than 100 garments and accessories.
