FREE – AFA MEMBERS ONLY
Join the AFA for an after-hours tour of The World of Anna Sui led by Barbara Paris Gifford, Assistant Curator, at the Museum of Arts and Design.
Born and raised in Detroit, educated and discovered in New York, Anna Sui reinvented pop culture fashion with her signature rock-and-roll romantic label in the 1990s and has remained a design icon ever since.
Beginning with her premiere catwalk show in 1991, Sui has shaped not only the garments, textiles, accessories, cosmetics, and interiors that comprise her design universe, but also the course of fashion history by popularizing the boutique fashion look. Her unique approach to creating narratives through her work is legendary: a self-taught historian of culture, art, and fashion, she samples music, books, exhibitions, movies, time periods, photography, and art movements in her designs.
The World of Anna Sui features approximately one-hundred looks from the designer’s archive, giving insights into her process and presenting a roll call of twelve archetypes that are staples of the Sui aesthetic.
