Costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and Catherine Martin for Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ now on display in Tokyo.
The travelling exhibition of selected costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin for Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of The Great Gatsby is on display June 14 – 30, 2013 at the Prada Epicenter in Tokyo Aoyama. The exhibition opening coincides with the Japanese première of the movie.
An Academy Award and Tony winning costume designer and art director, Catherine Martin is world- enowned for her collaborations with husband Baz Luhrmann on the films Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and the Broadway stage design for La Bohéme.
The exhibition - titled Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada Dress Gatsby - is curated by New York studio 2x4 and includes women’s gowns, dresses, hats, shoes and jewelry as well as sketches, production stills, backstage footage and film trailers.
The show reflects the unique characteristics of each location. In Tokyo, the display and mannequins are designed to fit into the unique interior of the Herzog & de Meuron-designed interior.
The display includes full scale, full body portraits of many of the actresses in costume and character sketches drawn from Catherine Martin’s extensive research.
