MOVE: The Modern Cut of Geoffrey Beene showcases the colorful, imaginative fashions of the late designer, whose dynamic garments prioritized comfort, movement, and a modern sensibility.
The newest major fashion-design exhibition at Phoenix Art Museum, MOVE: The Modern Cut of Geoffrey Beene offers a rare and intimate view into the work and career of one of the most awarded fashion designers in U.S. history. At his core, Beene was a fashion rebel who ignored trends, instead preferring to design garments that began as geometric shapes and evolved into silhouettes that moved naturally with the human form. His intuitive understanding of the body informed fashions that were unparalleled in their combination of luxury, thoughtful design, and comfort. Beene’s colorful, imaginative creations have been recognized with many accolades, including eight Coty American Fashion Critics Awards and three Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. His work has also been celebrated through various exhibitions at institutions across the nation.
Time: 10:00am - 5:00pm
