New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) is set to open an exhibit, dedicated to the style sense of yesteryear’s screen diva Lauren Bacall, from March 3 to April 4, 2015.

Organised and curated by the institution’s graduate students, the exhibition features around a dozen dresses selected from a collection of over 700 that the actress had donated to the museum between 1968 and 1986.

The display titled ‘Lauren Bacall: The Look’ features outfits designed between the 1960s and 1970s by Marc Bohan, Pierre Cardin, Norman Norell, Yves Saint Laurent and Emanuel Ungaro.

Some of the major attractions include a Norell vivid pink wool coat and a two-piece dress worn by the Bronx-born star in her 1964 film Sex and the Single Girl, a Cardin minidress accented with moulded 3-D pyramid shapes donned in the 1968 television show Bacall and the Boys, and a Christian Dior silk jersey evening dress with ostrich feathers.

The exhibit also showcases a Norell tan overcoat with gold sequined lining and a matching sequin sheath dress, an Ungaro silk damask pantsuit and a beaded sequined silk organza dress by Laurent. (PB)
