One of the great wonders of the fashion world, Yves Saint Laurent, makes his fashion debut in Denver this month. Actually, YSL won't be here, but his clothes will be.
The retrospective of iconic designer, Yves Saint Laurent, who's clothes became synonymous (along with Halston) with the Studio 54 culture of the 1970s, opens at the Denver Art Museum this Sunday, March 25, 2012.
After 40 years as one of the great impresarios of the fashion world, Yves Saint Laurent retired in 2002 and passed away in June of 2008. His home has become a museum and his fashion oeuvre has become the hottest international art exhibition -- and Denver hosts the retrospective for several months this spring.

I still remember the word that ended my spelling bee hopes 30+ years ago: transistor. In a fit of nerves I stalled out at t-r-a-n-s-i, and then when I resumed spelling, I forgot the second 's'. It was a youthful mistake -- that I've never forgotten. I still remember my parents' faces in the audience, trying to puzzle out how I'd missed such a simple word. But hey, it's not like it's haunted me ever since.
