Perspectives Fashion

Apr 28, 2023

The Costume Institute’s spring 2023 exhibition will examine the work of Karl Lagerfeld (1933–2019). Focusing on the designer’s stylistic vocabulary as expressed in aesthetic themes that appear time and again in his fashions from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019, the show will spotlight the German-born designer’s unique working methodology. The exhibition is on view May 5th through July 16th, 2023.

The exhibition is made possible by CHANEL.

Major support is provided by FENDI.

Additional support is provided by KARL LAGERFELD and Condé Nast.
