Nancy Reagan -- A First Lady's Style will illustrate the important roles

Mrs. Reagan played in the White House -- from hostess and ambassador, to

public servant and spokesperson, to loyal and caring wife -- by

exhibiting over 80 of her dresses, suits and gowns. The dresses

displayed span over fifty years - beginning with her March 4, 1952 wedding

dress and ending with the skirt suit she wore to President Reagan's

funeral in June of 2004.

 

This historic exhibit not only honors Mrs. Reagan, but also pays tribute

to the men and women who helped define her style. The exhibit will

display designs by Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass, Valentino Garavani, James

Galanos, Carolina Herrera, Adolfo Sardina, Yves St. Laurent, Oscar de la

Renta, Jean Louis and Chanel.

 

The exhibit will run from November 10, 2007 through November 10, 2008.

The exhibit was designed by WRJ Design Associates, LLC. in collaboration

with the Reagan Library staff.
