The Manchester Art Gallery hosts the 'Schiaparelli and Thirties Fashion' exhibition in tribute to Elsa Schiaparelli until 23 October 2016.
In the mid-20th century, fashion designer and artist Elsa Schiaparelli captivated a prestigious clientele of exceptional women including Marlene Dietrich and the future Duchess of Windsor Wallis Simpson.
The selection includes 25 iconic pieces by Schiaparelli divided into three major themes: the shape of the garment, the spectacular prints of the 30s and the rich embroidery characteristic of the Schiaparelli style.
