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.

Amazing! My perspective of fashion has been re-opened and completely exploded into a million other ideas and inspiration. Allen calls, must go. But I would definitely come back and revisit them again.

Dresses were magnificent!!! Is Mr. Cappucci alive today. I noted all of the fashions from my youth in the ready to wear ballon and asymmetrical dresses. The exhibit was unbelievably fantastic!!!

My daughter and i were enchanted with the exhibit. We did wonder why it was so dark, A little nore light would have helped. Also since thedreses were 3 dimensional, a mirror to show the part not facing front or a picture of the part of the gown that was partially obscured from view would have added to our enjoyment. This exhibit was exceptional and I have reccomended it to all my friends.

A movingly beautiful body of work, beautifully displayed. One question however, why no light in the back of many of the dresses? Many times we wanted to get a better look at the backs and they were hidden in shadow. Otherwise, a stunning show and good audiovisual commentary too.

Thank you for featuring this exhibit. It would be impossible for me to have enjoyed it any more thoroughly. I am amazed. Cappucci's expression of color, form, and texture will stay with me for a long time!

The last group were designed as sculptures. I would guess they weigh between 30 and 50 pounds.

Absolutely wonderful! I loved the evolution of his work from items that could be worn to sculpture. I also remember the 50's and being a child and it was a great nostalgic trip back, via the film. Also, being of Italian - Roman and Tuscan heritage, It made me very proud!
