Louis Vuitton: "Always Very French.."

Opening Milan Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton's 'The Art of Fashion' exhibition displays 30 key looks going as far back to 1998, in hommage to Marc Jacob and his time as creative director for Louis Vuitton. Showing
 from Sept 22-Oct 9th at Milan's design museum La Triennale, fans have well over a week to witness more than a decades worth of work. Using LV Speedy bags instead of heads on the mannequins, the exhibit reveals a more modern representation in which "highlights Jacobs' collaboration with artists including Richard Prince, Julie Verhoeven, Stephen Sprouse and Takashi Murakami."

Katie Grand, Love Magazine editor in chief and "the most sought-out stylist in the industry"(The New York Times Style Magazine) is responsible for curating the exhibit, and this is not the first tme. Within her decade of working with Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton, she curated Louis Vuitton’s first ever exhibition paying hommage to his ready to wear collections in May 2010. She went on to do it again in Moscow that same year, and in Paris May 2011. This Fall's exhibition received a lot buzz, and after looking at it I can see why! Take a look at this "up close and personal", behind the scenes footage of Grand as she explains her creative process!

"As long as you got good hair and a good shoe, you can pretty much do anything in the middle"- Katie Grand

Grand wasn't coined "the most sought out stylist" for nothing, from her past involvement with Prada womenswear and Dolce & Gabbana and D&G menswear to her FW 2011 collaborations on presentations by Louis VuittonGiles, LoeweTopshopJonathan SaundersEmanuel Ungaro, and the Lanvin for H&M show last November in NY, she is what most would consider a 'Super Stylist' to say the least. 

Her hard work styling shows, as well as advertising campaigns for six major fashion brands, including Marc Jacobs, has gained her great recognition including a nomination for the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator for the 2011 British Fashion Awards scheduled  for November 28th. Guess you'll be hearing more from Katie Grand in November!
