Hollywood in the Desert

Vision Gallery showcases glamorous fashions curated by Robert Black

Just in time for the Academy Awards season, Vision Gallery hosts the Hollywood in the Desert exhibition in historic downtown Chandler from March 8 through April 6.

Hollywood has always had a major influence on fashion and design, from silent movies to today’s red carpet. Names like Adrian, Helen Rose, Bill Travilla and Bob Mackie are known for dazzling the public with their creations on the screen and runway. Hollywood in the Desert shares fashions from these timeless influential designers and others, as curated by Robert Black.

Black, curator of the collection, is founder of the model and talent agency Ford Robert Black Agency. With his partner Doreen Picerne, philanthropist and fashionista, he shops around the world to offer a new vintage experience in red carpet couture, special occasion designer pieces and dynamic daywear, along with accessories and historic fashion treasures. Fashion by Robert Black boutique is located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale; visit fashionbyrobertblack.com for more information.

Vision Gallery will also hold a glamorous opening night on Wed., March 7, 6 – 9 p.m. Black will host the red carpet reception and actress Susan Clausen, playing the part of fashion design icon Edith Head, will entertain the crowd.
