I was so lucky that Calvin Klein invited me to join them at The Met’s Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. I was wearing a custom made dress by Francisco Costa. The process of designing the dress was incredible, we had two fittings over a couple of weeks, and seeing Francisco at work is really exceptional. Walking up the red carped I had to zigzag my way up between the photographers on each side, and Italo Zucchelli who’s the Calvin Klein mens wear designer and I agreed it was a lot of fun. Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada’s shares so many similarities, the quirk mixed with chic in their designs. Schiaparelli designed from the 1920’s and I loved getting to understand that people liked quirky at that time too, which is something I had never thought.

Of course I brought my camera and my pictures from the night are up at Calvin Klein’s Tumblr blog here. With more to come.
