'Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style' is a new exhibition which opened in Richmond at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition offers an insightful, and intimate glimpse into both the professional, and personal life of the iconic designer.
The gallery is equipped with a plethora of original sketches, notebooks filled with reference materials -- including fabric swatches, and model names -- and a collection board which documents every costume show spanning over a 40 year timeline.
The gallery acts as a testament to the quintessential designer while doubling as a time capsule, exhibiting significant pieces of pop culture, and fashion history. The gallery brings each garment to life by providing a new perspective into the behind the scenes work that was required in the making of each piece. The Perfection of Style is an astounding visual representation of Yves Saint Laurent's unequivocal life's work.
