Dazzling: Reserve Now For Capucci In Philadelphia!
Today, after six decades of creative achievement, he remains one of Italy’s most influential and imaginative artist-couturiers. Capucci (b. 1930) captured the attention of the international press at an early age, drawing praise from designers such as Christian Dior when he was still a teenager. His work has appealed to Italian aristocrats like the noblewoman Maria Pace Odescalchi, Italian actress Elsa Martinelli, whom he helped project to fame, and American actresses Marilyn Monroe, Esther Williams, and Gloria Swanson.
Today, Capucci fascinates and inspires contemporary designers such as Ralph Rucci, who admires Capucci’s dedication to the purity of his art.
Covering his couture designs from the 1950s to his recent sculptures, Roberto Capucci: Art into Fashion (March 16 – June 5, 2011) at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is the first major survey of his work in the United States.
