Impossible conversations: Baz Luhrmann, Schiaparelli and Prada

New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is putting on a Spring exhibition featuring my three favourite innovators – film-maker Baz Luhrmann and legendary fashion designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada. The idea behind the exhibition is inspired: an imaginary dialogue across time between the two women that reveals new interpretations of their work. This play with anachronism is supported by a film of fictional conversations between them directed by Luhrmann, whose interest in fashion informs his own work and style. Hope this exhibition travels in the future!
