Video: An Intimate Depiction of Fashion Designer Patrick Kelly's Life
Filmed in New York City and at the de Young museum, this short documentary celebrates the life, career, and legacy of Black fashion designer Patrick Kelly (1954–1990). Kelly’s evolution from “little young American from Mississippi to a grand master of fashion in Paris” is captured in vintage footage, as well as accounts of his friends and close collaborators. The film also features an interview with Laura L. Camerlengo, associate curator of costume and textile arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and offers a look into the Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love exhibition, now on view at the de Young museum.
See nearly 80 of Kelly’s head-turning ensembles at the de Young museum for a limited time only. Reserve your tickets to Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love today.
