As part of the exhibition Balenciaga, Master of Couture, Luca Marchetti will discuss the late 1960s, a pivotal period for the world of fashion. Marked by pop culture’s influence on traditional haute couture, the post-1968 era saw a radical transformation in the perception of fashion.
William Klein’s film Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?, which will be screened following the lecture, takes a subtle, ironic look at this unprecedented disruption in the history of fashion. Places are limited, reserve early.
