NSU Art Museum Hosts “Bellissima Gala”

By Roseanne Tabachnik

February 17, 2016

On Friday, February 8, fashion luminaries, art enthusiasts, and celebrities gathered at NSU Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale for the “Bellissima Gala,” honoring the 30th anniversary of the museum’s modernist building and the opening of the exhibition “Bellissima: Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968.”

The black-tie event, presented by Bulgari, celebrated the work of American architect Edward Larrabee Barnes and the U.S. premiere of the Italian exhibition. Featuring more than 230 designer garments and jewels, the exhibition, curated by Maria Luisa Frisa, Anna Mattirolo, and W magazine editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi, explores the evolution of Italian couture fashion following Word War II.
