For the fashion fiend: the exhibition, “Bellissima: Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968″ recently opened at the NSU Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Celebrating the revival of the Italian fashion industry in the wake of World War II, this presentation showcases through photograph, film, and fashion the best and brightest of Italian designers working in the post-war era. With iconic names from Bulgari to Valentino, this exhibition, sponsored by Bulgari, travels to Florida from its debut at the MAXXI: National Museum of the XXI Century in Rome and will remain on view until 5 June 2016.
For more information on the exhibition, please visit the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale site.
