Philadelphia Museum of Art Presents New Exhibit Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love April 27–November 30, 2014 Special Exhibitions Gallery, Perelman Building




This exhibition will showcase the work of American-born, Paris-based fashion designer Patrick Kelly, whose fashions conveyed exuberance. Kelly found inspiration in his African American and Mississippi roots, the work of celebrated couturiers such as Madame Grès and Elsa Schiaparelli, and his muses, Josephine Baker and his grandmother. He briefly studied art, history, and fashion design before moving, in 1979, to Paris, where he sold his own designs on the street—one-seam coats and skinny tubular knit dresses decorated with colorful buttons—until he was discovered by Elle magazine in 1985. Within two years Kelly was signed to a multimillion dollar contract with the Americanapparel company Warnaco. In 1988, he became the first American and the first black designer to be voted into the Chambre Syndicaledu Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode. His designs were worn by women of every age and shape, from Grace Jones to Bette Davis. Kelly’s untimely death in 1990 cut short a promising career. www.philamuseum.org
