High fashion is coming to Denver, Colorado in spring 2012.
The international fashion design exhibit Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective will be shown at the Denver Art Museum, March 25 to July 8, 2012.
This retrospective of the fashion designer’s 40 year career features a selection of 200 haute couture outfits, photography, drawings and films that illustrate Saint Laurent’s style and history.
