We are pleased to present the exhibition titled
Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada Dress Gatsby
which will be on display May 1 – 12, 2013 at the Prada
New York Epicenter at 575 Broadway in New York City.
The exhibition will then travel and appear at the Prada
Tokyo Epicenter from June 14 – 30 and the IFC Mall in
The exhibition titled Catherine Martin and Miuccia
Prada Dress Gatsby includes women’s gowns, dresses,
hats, shoes and jewelry as well as sketches, production stills
backstage footage and film trailers. The exhibition opening
will coincide with the world première of Luhrmann’s film
The Great Gatsby on May 1st at the Lincoln Center’s Avery
Fisher Hall. The Great Gatsby will go on to open the 66th
Cannes International Film Festival on May 15, 2013.
Very strict guidelines came from Catherine Martin in
terms of references and details on fabrics, colors,
materials that had to be period accurate, but modern
at the same time. While working on the costumes,
Miuccia Prada realized how many pieces created for
the Prada and Miu Miu runways in different seasons
had a very ‘20s mood once integrated in the movie’s
direction. At once historical and utterly contemporary,
the dresses are realized in brilliant iridescent metallic
lamé,sequins, silk taffeta, dyed fur, velvet and styled
with fantastical hats, shoes and accessories.
The exhibition includes mannequins displaying
looks for each character coupled with video content
drawn from the film and behind-the-scenes and,
for the New York Epicenter, a two hundred foot mural
depicting a montage drawn from the spectacular party
scenes showing Jay Gatsby’s Long Island mansion.
The exhibition – curated by New York studio 2×4 – is
designed to change for each iteration and reflect
the unique characteristics of each location.
