From Paper to Fabric, the Creations of Artist, Isabelle de Borchgrave, Come Alive in This Exhibit

SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film is proud to present Fashioning Art from Paper, an exhibition that explores 500 years of fashion through the breathtaking trompe l'oeil masterpieces of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave.

Through her expert manipulation of paper and paint, de Borchgrave creates sculptural replicas of historic garments found in early European paintings or collections from around the world — from the Renaissance finery of the Medici family and gowns worn by Queen Elizabeth I, to the creations of the grand couturiers of the 20th century, such as Charles Frederick Worth and Paul Poiret.

The exhibition includes de Borchgrave’s series Les Ballet Russes, which interprets costumes designed by Léon Bakst, Giorgio de Chirico and Pablo Picasso, among others, as well as her Kaftans series, inspired by the Silk Road textiles of central Asia. The exhibition also highlights the creations of the eccentric early 20th-century artist Mariano Fortuny, a major source of inspiration for de Borchgrave.

Fashioning Art from Paper is co-organized by SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film, Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Society of the Four Arts, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Frick Art and Historical Center, Baker Museum and Flint Institute of Arts. The exhibit will be on display until January 12, 2020.

Admission to the exhibition is free for museum members and SCAD students, faculty, and staff with a valid SCAD Card. The exhibit is open to the public with the cost of museum admission.
