Student fashion designs inspired by Salvador Dali, showcased by four models

Fashion Design at The Dalí 2017

< All Exhibits

December 11, 2017 – December 31, 2017

This special exhibit features twenty-two photographs of garments created by budding fashion designers who have completed the 13 week “Fashion Design at The Dalí” program. These students are from 18 high schools and 4 counties in the Tampa Bay area. Workshop participants learned the fundamentals of design and construction techniques, explored the use of non-traditional materials and learned runway presentation from experienced artists and designers.

The students (9th-12th grade) explored the connections between art and fashion, creating runway-ready wearable art inspired by the work of surrealist Salvador Dalí and renowned fashion designer Elsa Schaiparelli.

Also featured in this exhibit is the winning design from The Dalí’s Fashion Design Challenge, a rendering inspired by The Hallucinogenic Toreador by Kaitlin Grant.

This exhibit will be on view in the Raymond James Community Room for a short time only. It is presented in conjunction with our Dalí & Schiaparelli exhibition running October 18, 2017 through January 18, 2018.
