"Emilio Pucci, Fashion Impressario" exhibits
The world-renowned fashion designer, Emilio Pucci MA ’37, had a special relationship with Reed College. President Dexter Keezer traded tuition and room and board for Pucci’s time and expertise as a ski instructor, giving Reed the first ski team and, incidentally, giving the world the first of Pucci’s designs with the ski uniforms he created. On display are items, photos, and documents that connect Pucci to Reed and follow his long association with the college, courtesy of the library's special collections. This library exhibition (ongoing through April 25) dovetails with Italian Style, which includes examples from the fashion house of Pucci and is on view through May 3 at the Portland Art Museum.
