Say Chic: YSL descends in Denver
The retrospective of iconic designer, Yves Saint Laurent, who's clothes became synonymous (along with Halston) with the Studio 54 culture of the 1970s, opens at the Denver Art Museum this Sunday, March 25, 2012.
After 40 years as one of the great impresarios of the fashion world, Yves Saint Laurent retired in 2002 and passed away in June of 2008. His home has become a museum and his fashion oeuvre has become the hottest international art exhibition -- and Denver hosts the retrospective for several months this spring.
Probably best known for his Mondrian dress and his tuxedo outfits for women (called Le Smoking tuxedos), he was the most sought after designer for European and American jetsetters. Counted among his famous clients were Liza Minnelli, Catherine Deneuve and super model Iman, who Saint Laurent called his "dream woman."
Fresh City Life is pitching in to help the Denver Art Museum welcome the YSL retrospective to town at their Untitled: Haute event on Friday, March 30. We'll be on hand with our Craft Services station - where we'll be teaching guests how to make an origami pocket square that can be worn with or without a pocket --- on your favorite YSL or your favorite T-shirt. Hope to see you there!
BTW, send us a chic comment on our Fresh City Life facebook page and you'll be entered to win a pair of Untitled: Haute tickets! We've got two sets to giveaway.
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
