The PRADA New York Epicenter at 575 Broadway in Manhattan was transformed last night for the opening of a special exhibition of selected costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming film adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The exhibition opening coincides with the world première of Luhrmann’s film on this evening at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall.
The exhibition titled Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada Dress Gatsby includes women’s gowns, dresses, hats, shoes and jewelry as well as sketches, production stills, backstage footage and film trailers. Mannequins displaying looks for each character, video content drawn from the film, behind-the-scenes footage, and, exclusive to the New York Epicenter, a two hundred foot mural depicting a montage drawn from the spectacular party scenes showing Jay Gatsby’s Long Island mansion complete the exhibition. Curated by New York studio 2×4, the exhibition is designed to change for each iteration and reflect the unique characteristics of each location.
The exhibit will be on display May 1 – 12, 2013 at the PRADA New York Epicenter. The exhibition will then travel and appear at the Prada Tokyo Epicenter store from June 14 – 30 and the IFC Mall in Shanghai mid-July. Continue reading to view full images of the event.
