Pardon our dust while we update this corner of the website.


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.

I really enjoyed the Capucci exhibit. It really split the difference between Fashion and Art. The private pre-opening tour that we took made it much more fascinating and instructive. I would hope that you would do more Fashion exhibits in the future. The Met seems to present at least one a year!

totally adored the exhibit, I had never heard of him before this show, but now I am telling everyone to be sure to see his work. And I was so happy there were no glass cases and that one could see the clothes up so close.

Please, please think of getting the Grace Kelly fashion show that was at the Victorian and Albert museum in London.

The exhibition was exquisite. And I know it's quite silly of me, but I couldn't help but want to take pictures;) The red pebble dress was by far my most favorite dress of the whole exhibit. It beat out the "Angel" dress; which was undoubtably as beautiful. The pebble dress seemed to speak to my soul. As I looked at it, and listened to the audio explanation, I could practically see the stone being tossed myself. Upon close inspection, I could see that the dress had been worn in some way. On the body or via shipment I can't be sure. But I felt it helped to reinforce the authenticity. The angles, or lack there of, flowed in a very natural way. I doubt Capucci meant it any other way.The whole exhibition was beautiful, although I felt it tiring to view such dresses and works of art. As a designer myself, and son to be global journalist, I kept thinking of ways to recreate or imitate them. Which, believe me, is very costly on the mind. Plus, my eyes got a little tired. I guess I just couldn't take so much beauty at one time. I will definitely have to come back :)This has been an enlightening review by Mica Sh'mah. Hope you enjoyed because I did

Capucci is a revelation. I vaguely remembered his designs for clothes but, of course, it is NOT about clothes. It is soft and multicolored sculpture, with the most amazing combinations of color and materials. We loved it (and here my husband was not so enthusiastic about going to see "a couturier's show." He is going back, with me. Thank you for the idea, the exhibition, the presentation and the comments

One of the best exhibits I've seen. I will be in Florence next month and plan to go to the Capucci Foundation if I can.
