Joaquin Sorolla and the Glory of Spanish Dress at the Queen Sophia Institute NYC


The Queen Sofia Spanish Institute in New York City is home to a dazzling exhibition of Joaquin Sorolla and the Glory of Spanish Dress. Conceived by Oscar de la Renta, Chairman of the Institute’s Board of Directors, and curated by Vogue’s André Leon Talley, the exhibition can only live on the very vortex of fabulous.
Get inspired by dramatic lace, bewitching embroidery and sheer drama. The paintings are combined with traditional dress and significant contemporary designers to illustrate a rich mural of Spanish culture, tradition, passion and how it has influenced fashion.

Visit the museum or if you cannot get to NYC, enjoy the delightful banter of Oscar de la Renta and André Leon Talley in this video from Nowness.
