Arnold Scaasi Exhibit at the MFA, Boston Part 2

Continuing my look at the exhibit Scaasi: American Couturier, here are a few of the remaining garments on display. These are all from the 1980s and 90s.

1980 strapless gown and stole made for Gayfryd Steinberg of organza leaves in black and white.

Yellow silk gown made for Gayfryd Steinberg in the 1980s.

1988 silk chiffon gown and stole for Gayfryd Steinberg. The silk is adorned with beads, pearls, and white mink fur.

Perhaps my favorite of all, this strapless gown for Gayfryd Steinberg is adorned with 3-dimensional roses, silver leaves, and white feathers, all trimmed in white mink fur.

Two ready-to-wear pieces made for Saks Fifth Avenue in the 80s.

Two more gowns for Gayfryd Steinberg, the one on the left from 1988.

1991 silk chiffon ombre gown in pinks and greens. The cocktail dress at the back is a ready-to-wear garment made for Saks Fifth Avenue.

If you live in New England or will be visiting soon, the Scaasi exhibit runs through June 19, 2011 and is well worth a visit!
