Join us for the first ever Derby fashion exhibit!
For the first time, the great traditions of more than one hundred years of outrageous fashion at this infamous race will be explored and admired in one location. This exhibition will showcase the fashion of Derby winning owners, local residents, couture designers and celebrities through the decades. The exhibit will also demonstrate the impact fashion has on the Derby and the economy in Louisville. This dynamic exhibit promises to be a hit for one and all! April 10, 2009- August 1, 2009: The exhibit opens with a display of lavish gowns on April 10th. Each decade since 1875 (the year of the first Kentucky Derby) will be represented by gowns styled on 60 mannequins. Donned by members of high society and celebrities, these gowns will showcase the flavor and elegance of Derby season. Gowns will be included from Armani, Issey Miyake, Nina Ricci, Karl Lagerfeld, Bob Mackie, Chanel, Escada, Carolina Herrara and Bill Blass, along with vintage dresses from the 20’s and 30’s and antique outfits from the late 1800’s.
