With a breathtaking installation that includes a series of films directed by Baz Luhrmann, impeccable ready-to-wear, and vintage fashion photography, the latest Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibition, "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations," opens May 10. The show will dazzle fashion and film aficionados alike. ARTINFO attended the press preview, speaking to Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton, who explained how he, along with curator-in-charge Harold Koda, conceptualized the fantastical dialogue between the late Elsa Schiaparelli (played by Judy Davis in the Lurhmann films) and Miuccia Prada.
