An American Legacy: Norell, Blass, Halston & Sprouse 

When: May 4-Jan. 27 2013
An American Legacy: Norell, Blass, Halston & Sprouse at the Indianapolis Museum of Art highlights the achievements of celebrated fashion designers Norman Norell, Bill Blass, Stephen Sprouse and Halston, all of whom hailed from Indiana. Spanning more than 50 years of fashion history, the exhibition presents the work of four innovative designers, their individual styles and lasting influence on American fashion. Featuring some of the most outstanding garments from the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s fashion arts collection, An American Legacy will be on view from May 4, 2012, to January 27, 2013.

Among the highlights of the exhibition are a Bill Blass evening gown created for the former first lady Nancy Reagan, a Norman Norell day dress worn by American actress Betty Furness while on camera during the 1960 Presidential convention, a 1972 evening dress designed by Halston based on Andy Warhol’s ‘flowers’ paintings, and a Sprouse designed Warhol-inspired camouflage dress popularized by rock star Debbie Harry. Organized by the IMA, An American Legacy will be on view in the museum’s Gerald & Dorit Paul Textile and Fashion Arts galleries.
