Think You Don’t Like Meissen?

May

The Cummer is home to the Ralph. H and Constance I. Wark Collection of Early Meissen Porcelain, one of the three finest and most comprehensive collections in the world. As open the Lovett Gallery, it is great to see Meissen influence shining through in other mediums.

Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou, known for her bold, vibrant prints and signature lampshade skirts, has taken the beauty of Meissen and brought it to life in her fall 2011 collection.  Inspired by objects of beauty like Fabregé eggs, cloisonné enamel, Ming vases, and of course, Meissen porcelain, Katrantzou has created a unique and modern array of dresses made from velvet, silk, and Orientalist knit sheath. These lively designs are making an enormous splash in the fashion world this year. So, why not come see the source of the inspiration first hand? Join us Friday, May 13th to view the Meissen Porcelain collection.
