Is there anyone who doesn't love Dolly? Nobody personifies our larger-than-life, sequin-covered optimism, and blonde enthusiasm more than Miss Parton. So what a treat for us to curate and produce the first exhibition devoted to her style. Dolly opened the doors to her Tennessee storage facility, giving us access to thousands of her costumes and decades of concert footage. The team created a series of films showcasing her dresses, screening them alongside her most iconic looks. Our very special friend Kylie Minogue joined Jake Sheers and Rufus Wainwright to sing all our Dolly favorites, celebrate her remarkable career, and raise money for Dolly's charity The Imagination Library.
“She’s a pop culture icon who has remained true to her larger-than-life personality. I thought it could be interesting to use her costumes and video content surrounding her performances as symbolic milestones to celebrate her cultural significance." - Richard Christiansen, for Fashion Week Daily
