The university will  honor and celebrate the 35-year reign of the storied House of Herrera with an expansive dual exhibition of Herrera’s designs. “Refined Irreverence” opens simultaneously on May 20 at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta and at the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah.

“My design philosophy is elegance and beauty,” Herrera tells Vogue.com. “You can be elegant in revolution, and you can be irreverent without shocking people.” To wit: featured pieces from “Refined Irreverence” like a prim black and taxi yellow, wholly sequined suit from her first collection, or a full-sleeved, sparkling zebra wrap dress that dates back to 1983, both on display alongside more contemporary pieces like the fuchsia, Korean-inspired duchesse gown Angelina Jolie donned in Vogue in 2010.  carolina
