 "I'm not a fashion designer but an artist who works in fashion – an engineer of colour and form."
Giorgio di Sant'Angelo

Giorgio di Sant'Angelo was a cult favourite of celebrities such as Lena Horne, Diana Ross and Mick Jagger. The late fashion designer receives his first retrospective at the Pheonix Art Museum. His boho collections mixed American Indian, gypsy, Asian and African influences. Whilst not as commercial as some of his contemporaries at the time, this exhibition is timely with many designers showing Native American and Western influences - Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and Opening Ceremony to name a few. His breakout was in the July '68 issue of Vogue, with his model-muse Veruschka clothed in his colourful fabrics, ropes, furs, introducing his signature nomadic chic!
