Past Event
The biggest question at award shows, besides who will win, is "Who's wearing whom?" The answer is often Narciso Rodriguez, a superstar designer who’s outfitted everyone from First Lady Michelle Obama to the actors and icons who frequent the runways and red carpets of the world. After receiving his formal education at New York’s Parsons School of Design and an initial apprenticeship in the New York garment industry, Rodriguez began working with fashion megastar Donna Karan and later Calvin Klein, who singled him out to oversee his women’s collection. Among Rodriguez’s many subsequent distinctions was his design for the dress that Carolyn Bessette wore for her wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr. The designer also claims numerous prestigious awards from the international fashion industry, kudos from Time magazine as one of its “25 Most Influential Hispanics in America,” and ongoing design contributions to film and television, including the most recent season of the HBO hit series Veep. Be warned: The Frost Art Museum’s upcoming exhibit of his stunning creations will ensure you’ll never view a department store knockoff the same way again. "Narciso Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism, presented by Elle magazine, will be on display Sunday, Oct. 16, through January 8, 2017, at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU (10975 SW 17th St., Miami).
