Elsa Schiaparelli, along with rival Coco Chanel, dominated the women’s fashion scene in the early part of the twentieth century. It was Schiaparelli who designed the famous pink suit Jackie (Bouvier) Kennedy (Onasis) wore the day her husband, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated. She was also of the surrealist camp with the likes of Salvador Dali, and this influence can be seen in her designs, especially in her trompe-l’oeil sweaters. Her collections were recently exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
