Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love & Gerlan Jeans Loves Patrick Kelly

When: April 27, 2014 - November 30, 2014
Where: Perelman Building, Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2525 Pennsylvania Avenue
Cost: $20 General Admission | $14 Students
More Info: www.philamuseum.org

Philly’s fashion stock continues to rise this year. On the heels of Philly Fashion Week and The Barnes Foundation's exhibit of international art impresario Yinka Shonibare, Philly has yet another style centered exhibit coming to town. On display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Perelman Building, Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love explores the sudden rise and remarkable achievements of 1980’s American-born, Paris-based fashion designer, Patrick Kelly.

The exhibition is the first to showcase full on of Kelly’s head-to-toe fashion ensembles. Over 80 creations will be on display and will also feature selections from his extensive collection of black memorabilia, videos of his lively fashion shows, and works by renowned fashion photographers Horst P. Horst, Pierre et Gilles, and Oliviero Toscani.

In addition to Runway to Love, the Philadelphia Museum of Art will also feature Gerlan Jeans ♥ Patrick Kelly, a complimentary exhibition of whimsical streetwear by Gerlan Jeans. Gerlan, who has been worn by the likes of Beyonce and Katy Perry, has reinterpreted Kelly’s signature aesthetics: bows, buttons, and other bold embellishments, to create clothes that embody the dynamic spirit of the 80s.

Both exhibits will run April 27 through November 30 in the Perelman Building at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
