Yesterday, I had the privileged of taking a trip up to Beverly Hills to the Il Teatro Alla Moda exhibit at the Wallis Annenberg Center For the Performing Arts. This was an exhibit of couture costumes designed by Italian designers for operas and stage productions. In all my life, I have never got the chance to be so close to couture peices, so it was only natural for this experience to be mind-blowing. The exhibit displayed pieces by the following: Versace, Aramni, Missoni, Fendi, Marras, and many many more. The group I was with got a guided tour through the exhibit, so we got to learn about all the pieces and how much work was put into each and every costume. My favorite room in the exhibit was the Versace room. Not only did it have the most costumes in it, but it just should how influential Versace has been in the world of opera and theater. I was truly stunned by how much detail went into some of the pieces. I will definitely never forget this experience, and I hope to have the chance to see more exhibits just like this one in the future.
