Tatiana Sorokko Style

Paquin. Lanvin. Alaia. Balenciaga. Ungaro. Halston. Chado Ralph Rucci.

These are just some of the legendary designers featured in the Phoenix Art Museum’s new must-see exhibit Extending the Runway: Tatiana Sorokko Style.

Curated by fashion historian Dennita Sewell, Extending the Runway showcases over 60 garments in Tatiana’s couture collection, some dating back to the early 1920s.

1920's dresses

Tatiana Sorokko, a contributing editor to Harper’s Bazaar was the first Russian model to achieve international success and Extending the Runway reflects her passion for the artistry and construction of clothing created by the great haute couture designers.

Tatiana had the opportunity to work with many of the designers, so many garments in the collection have their own personal story. For us, Extending the Runway presents a wonderful opportunity to learn, not only about the history of fashion, but to understand what separates a $100 dress from a dress that costs $10,000.

If you live in the Phoenix area you have until January 2 to see the exhibit, but for those of us who are not as fortunate, here is a preview of Tatiana’s collection.
