IMA exhibit to showcase Hoosier fashion designers

Four Indiana fashion designers will be celebrated with a new exhibition at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

Norman Norrell, Bill Blass, Stephen Sprouse and Halston will all be featured in the exhibit called "An American Legacy." All four designers grew up in Indiana. Their clothing ranges in date from the 1940s to the late 20th century.

The exhibit will display more than 50 garments from the IMA's collection and the archives of Stephen Sprouse. Highlights include a Bill Blass gown created for former first lady Nancy Reagan and a Halston dress based on the flower paintings of Andy Warhol.

"An American Legacy" will open on May 4 and stay on display in the museum's textile and fashion arts galleries until January 2013.
