Patrick Kelly

In the 1980s the young African American fashion designer Patrick Kelly took Paris by storm, becoming the first American member of the Chambre Syndicale du Prêt-à-Porter (the governing body of the prestigious French ready-to-wear industry). The first retrospective of Patrick Kelly's work includes more than sixty complete ensembles drawn from his estate. Archival material from the estate and numerous objects from Kelly's personal collection of memorabilia are also featured.
