André Leon Talley is at work on a project very close to his heart. Per WWD, he is curating a museum show of the late Oscar de la Renta’s work for the Savannah College of Art and Design, where he is a board member. Talley, who was a longtime friend of de la Renta’s, conferred with the designer’s son-in-law, Alex Bolen, while putting together the exhibit. Talley told the paper that he does not intend for it to be an exhaustive overview, but rather, “my interpretation of Oscar’s legacy through his work and my memory of it.”

The show opens on February 3, and among the 70 pieces featured will be Taylor Swift’s Met Ball dress and the gown Hillary Clinton wore on her Vogue cover. Talley is also at work on a companion volume, to be released by Rizzoli in September, titled Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style.
