Lauren Bacall: The Look is a celebration of the film and theater star’s unique style. Bacall’s own garments take the spotlight in this exhibition which also explores Bacall’s personal relationships with several of the fashion designers who dressed her.
Lauren Bacall’s effortless style combined elegance and simplicity. Students in the Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice MA program in FIT’s School of Graduate Studies have collaborated with The Museum at FIT to present approximately 12 items from a collection of 700 that Bacall donated to the museum in 22 gifts, between 1968 and 1986. The Look will include work by designers Marc Bohan, Pierre Cardin, Norman Norell, Yves Saint Laurent, and Emanuel Ungaro, focusing on pieces from the 1960s and 1970s. A selection of pieces in the Bacall collection can be viewed in the Museum’s online collections.
