The Frost Art Museum Welcomes Narciso Rodriguez


Are you familiar with Narciso Rodriguez? The Cuban-American fashion designer has developed a global reputation for his work, and if you’ve yet to check it out you’ll be able to see it right here in Miami at the Frost Art Museum.

The “Narciso Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism” exhibition opened this past Saturday and consists of forty items of clothing showcasing Rodriguez’s complex creative process, his vision, and his intellectual approach to creating garments that are timeless.

Narciso Rodriguez was born in New Jersey to Cuban parents and studied at Parsons School of Design in New York. After doing some freelance work, he joined Anne Klein under Donna Karan before moving over to working on the Women’s Collection as part of Calvin Klein. By the late 1990s, Rodriguez had moved up to the position of Design Director of TSE and also became the appointed Design Director of Paris-based Cerruti. It wasn’t until 1997 that he partnered with Italian manufacturer AEFFE and launched the first Narciso Rodriguez label, going on to win numerous awards and accolades.

Rodriguez’s designs have been worn by many notable names including the late Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, actress Sarah Jessica Parker of Sex and the City fame, and even First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama.

The Narciso Rodriguez exhibition will be on display at the Frost Museum until January 8th.
