Event description

Description

Join the French Cultural Center and Lasell University in celebrating Boston Fashion Week with a unique look at curated French pieces from the Lasell Fashion Collection. This unique exhibit and separate private tour are for one evening only!

The Fashion Collection team at Lasell University have curated an exceptional intimate fashion retrospective spanning two centuries and multiple designers. On display will be 17 pieces from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Sonia Rykiel, Jeanne Lanvin, and Comme des Garçons among others. These select pieces, including an original 1880 Parisian opera costume, will face each other in an exhibition that tells the story of their eras through their designs and the techniques used in their creation.

Open to the public, the general reception will start at 7 pm and run through 9 pm, with light refreshments.

Jill M. Carey, Professor and Curator at Lasell University, Stephanie Hebert, Collections Manager, and their team of passionate students will be available to guide guests in this exceptional journey enriched by interactive components.

This event will mark the launching of the website and digital catalog of the University’s own permanent fashion collection.

Limited tickets to a private tour and presentation of historic French handfans with fan historian and collector Shelly Goncalves, former president of the Fan Association of North America, are available for purchase. This tour and presentation will precede the general reception, at 5:30 pm.
