Lecture on French fashion designer to be held tonight

Emily Rasinski

Jean Druesedow, Kent State University Museum Director and curator, will speak tonight about the career of Yves Saint Laurent, a French designer considered to be one of the greatest of the 20th century. The lecture, which will take place at 7 p.m. in the Rockwell Hall auditorium, corresponds with an exhibit now on display featuring his designs.

The exhibit showcases garments from Laurent’s career, which spanned from 1962 to 2002. The garments, many of which were gifts to the museum, features the classic styles associated with the dressmaking of the French haute couture, the finest or highest form of sewing.

The lecture is free to Kent State students and the public with museum admission. The Laurent exhibit will run through March 2006.
