A Dream of Identity: Coco Chanel and the Myths of Fashion

Rhonda Garelick, Professor of English at the University of Nebraska and a well-known scholar and writer on performance, literature, fashion, and cultural politics, will explore Coco Chanel’s influence on fashion as well as in literary and artistic circles in Paris. Chanel’s Mediterranean villa, La Pausa, also hosted many cultural luminaries, including Salvador Dalí and Jean Cocteau. Five rooms of the Villa La Pausa were re-created at the Dallas Museum of Art to house the Wendy and Emery Reves Collection of impressionist, post-impressionist, and modern European art.
