Thank You so much Paco for pointing out The Kent State University Museum site. I see why you said the fabric must be "noble".
Curator Anne Bissonnette wrote "While Mr. Rucci is well-known and admired throughout the international fashion community for his impeccable garments, the Kent State University Museum exhibition represents the first major public display of his work".
These are just a few pictures of Chado Ralph Rucci's collection. All his garments are a piece of art. I choose these garments because I especially like his "suspension" technique.
