Anna Sui Retrospective

 

Inside The World Of Anna Sui

We highly recommend the retrospective of fashion designer Anna Sui work on exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design (until February 23, 2020) in New York City. The show, which opened during New York Fashion Week features seventy-five looks from the designer’s archive. On display are pieces from the designer’s groundbreaking inaugural fashion show in 1991 to her Spring 2019 collection and the exhibition display illuminates Sui’s creative process and influences that contribute to her signature aesthetic sensibility. “Born and bred in Detroit, Anna Sui is a fascinating American design success story,” said Chris Scoates, MAD’s Nanette L. Laitman Director. “Season after season, Sui translates popular culture and artisanal making into collections that pulse with excitement, reflect and expand on the creative spirit of the times, and move the needle for what fashion can and should be for a diverse, global market. We are extremely excited to welcome our visitors for an unforgettable immersive experience of Anna’s design universe.” Sui is one of New York City’s most beloved and accomplished fashion designers, known for creating contemporary original clothing inspired by in-depth research into vintage styles, cultural arcana, art history, graphic design, European and Asian decorative arts, film, and more. Sui joined New York’s creative cultural underground at a rich time in the 1970s, forging important, lasting relationships in the worlds of fashion, photography, art, music, and design. Additionally, she is one of the original voices of the Save the Garment Center movement. Arranged thematically, The World of Anna Sui is driven by Sui’s thirteen design archetypes— Rock Star, Schoolgirl, Punk, Nomad, and Surfer, to name a few—that are infused with seemingly incongruent influences, including French interior designer and antique dealer Madeleine Castaing, the London boutique Biba, pirates, pre-Raphaelite maidens, Yves Saint Laurent, and Minnie Mouse.

The garments, sketches, mood boards, videos of runway presentations, and cultural ephemera on view trace Sui’s eclectic career and illuminate her creative process. “Since 1991, Anna has been a major influence in fashion, bringing the boutique look to a wider audience, and expanding it to accessories, perfumes, and cosmetics,” said Barbara Paris Gifford, Assistant Curator at MAD. “A prolific storyteller, Anna weaves together popular and little known visual references every season creating singular looks that are unmistakably Anna. Throughout the exhibition, you see evidence of her vast knowledge of music, movies, interior design, books, periods, graphic design, art movements, fashion, and photography.” The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD).
