We’ve finalized the project we (SOFTlab) worked on for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We worked very closely with the Met’s Costume Institute to develop 2 animations for their:
“Paul Poiret: King of Fashion” exhibit which will open May 9th through August 5th.
The press preview was today and I have to say, this exhibition is FANTASTIC! It is quite an interesting survey of the work of one of the most influential fashion designers of the early twentieth century. His dresses are (and I’m by no means a fashion expert) very minimal and astonishingly complex. As I learned, from working with the curators (Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton) from the Costume Institute, the structural complexity of his garments is achieved with an economy of means that seems way too contemporary.
The whole experience was just great, and all the people we worked with at the Museum were amazing. Kudos and thanks to Christopher Noey, Harold Koda, Andrew Bolton, Paul Caro, Jessica Glass and Jessica Regan.
