Back in March, the public run of two recently opened exhibitions, Derek Adams Exhibition: ‘Patrick Kelly, The Journey’ and Alaïa — Adrian: Masters of Cut, was interrupted when COVID-19 forced the closure of all SCAD facilities in Savannah and Atlanta. In July, the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film announced an extension of both exhibitions into the fall season.


Patrick Kelly, The Journey stems from Derrick Adams’ keen exploration into the archive of African-American fashion designer Patrick Kelly (1954–90) who was the first American admitted to the Chambre syndicale du prêt-à-porter, the prestigious governing body of the French ready-to-wear industry. Included in the exhibition are abstract collages and sculptural works, which incorporate Kelly’s vintage clothing patterns, iconic fabrics, boldly colorful geometric forms and embellishments.

Masters of Cut offers sleek designs and sharply tailored garments by renowned designers Azzedine Alaïa (1935–2017) and Gilbert Adrian (1903–1959). The garments on display showcase Adrian’s sublimely tailored suits with their mitered stripes, playful seaming, and unusual appliqués paired with Alaïa’s designs, which envelope the wearer in contours that flatter and accentuate the female form. The head of costume design for MGM during the Golden Age of Hollywood, Adrian is best known for his work on The Wizard of Oz. Masters of Cut features Alaïa-designed gowns worn by contemporary fashion icons including Grace Jones.

At press time, SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film is closed. Updates on when the museum will be open and guidelines pertaining to public access are available at the museum website.
