This retrospective presents the joyful and colorful fashions of African American designer Patrick Kelly, who took Paris by storm in the 1980s. Inspired by his Mississippi roots, the nightclubs of New York and Paris, Josephine Baker, and celebrated couturiers Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, Kelly infused his bold designs with a sly sense of humor, subverting not only fashion but also racial stereotypes.
