Style Versus Fashion– Jacqueline de Ribes: The Art of Style at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Posted on Nov 17, 2015

Exhibition Dates: November 19, 2015–February 21, 2016

​​Step into the World of Style and experience decades of unexpected, thematic and conceptually nuanced expressions in clothing.

This exhibition features approximately 60 ensembles of haute couture and ready to-wear items from de Ribes’ personal archive dating from 1962 to the present.  Take time to enjoy the celebration of her creativity; ability to see beyond the design created by others, and how she adapts it to make it her own.

Harold Koda, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute, who organized the exhibition​ says:​

“Her approach to dress as a statement of individuality can be seen as a kind of performance art. When she established her own fashion house, her friend Yves Saint Laurent gave his blessing to the venture as a welcome projection of her elegance.”
