André Leon Talley Honors Stephen Burrows at SCAD
“The first time I noticed Stephen Burrows was in 1970 and it was a Vogue spread,” says André Leon Talley. “It was a column in the back of the book done by Carrie Donovan. They were photographed in Central Park in color. That, to me, triggered my interest in this man.” That interest has maintained: This past weekend, Burrows traveled to the Savannah College of Art and Design to receive the André Leon Talley Lifetime Achievement Award and walk through an exhibit curated by Talley on his work, “An American Master of Inventive Design” (on view through September 15). Though the curator had some help: “Out of the 23 outfits, three are not from Pat Cleveland,” exclaims Talley, referring to the iconic model.
