Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Read the impressions of others, and questions asked for curator Dilys Blum.

The dresses are stunning!

Art not clothing.In the end his designs were never intended to be worn.Interesting to find out how it escaped economic realities.Steve

Unbelievable, a truly amazing exhibition. Kudos to the museum and the curators. From the great grand niece of Hannah Troy.

Dr. Blum and all the ladies at Costume and Textiles, awesome job on this exhibition. As always, you put on a great, informative show. We especially enjoyed the curator commentary and the artistic style of the display. We found Capucci's work simply breathtaking. Thank you for bringing it to us!! Hope you're enjoying a little celebratory break after this. All the best!

It's fantastic to see the conceptual designs go from very abstract/artificial in form and material to very organic in form and material as the decades roll by. Brilliant guy! I love the playful whimsy-factor here.

My sister, a professor of costume design in North Carolina, couldn't come to Philadelphia, but asked me to find out what other museums would be hosting this exhibition. None! Philadelphia is the only place to have this marvelous show. Good for you, PMA!!! I loved this exhibit; my sister will have to be content with the exhibition catalog-----if I can bring myself to part with it.
