Yves Saint-Laurent: The Perfection of Style

May 6 - August 27, 2017
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

The energetic sights and sounds of the fashion runway come to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts this spring with Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style. Drawn from the archives of the Fondation Pierre Bergé—Yves Saint Laurent and other private collections, this breathtaking exhibition offers an intimate and comprehensive look at the lifetime achievement of Yves Saint Laurent, one of history’s most radical and influential fashion designers. Featuring 100 examples of haute couture and ready-to-wear garments—some never shown publicly before—this exhibition reveals Saint Laurent’s artistic genius, as well as his working process, and the sources of his design inspiration.

In addition to haute couture ensembles and ready-to-wear clothing, the exhibition includes costume jewelry and other accessories, photographs, drawings, films, and video from the Fondation's vast archive. The exhibition traces the trajectory of Saint Laurent's style as it developed thoughout the course of his career.

VMFA is the only East Coast venue for the exhibition, which has been organized by the Seattle Art Museum in partnership with the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent in Paris.
