A Tribute to James Galanos
August 19, 2017 - January 7, 2018
ELLMAN FASHION DESIGN GALLERY
A Tribute to James Galanos will pay homage to the late American designer (1924-2016) with an exhibition spanning five decades of his designs from the permanent collection and private lenders, as well as never before seen photographs from his personal archives. A supporter of the Museum’s programs, Galanos personally donated a group of his designs to the fashion collection in 1990 and participated in several of its events.
Highlights will include gowns made for Galanos’ clients including Sybil Harrington, Kitty Carlyle Hart, Nancy Reagan, Ann Bonefory Taylor and Marie Vanderbilt Whitney as well as contemporary collectors including Tatiana Sorokko, Gelila Puck, and Ralph Rucci.
This exhibition is organized by Phoenix Art Museum.
