Pucci's Flash Back

Models of yesteryear will reappear next month at Ralph Pucci International's headquarters in Manhattan - in their immortalized forms.

The mannequin company plans to inaugurate a new exhibition space called Gallery 9 at it's West 18th Street offices with a show for Josef Astor's photographs of the past two decades that naturally feature Pucci mannequins. In 'Displayed,' stills of mannequins designed at the company by Karl Lagerfield, Ruben Toledo and Andrée Putman will be showcased in the penthouse gallery, along with Pucci models designed in the likeness of Veruschka, Aly Dunne and Christy Turlington. Astor, who has had his own studio since 1985, started his career by assisting Irving Penn and Angus McBean.

'Josef's work is surrealistic and unusual, but it stands the test of time,' said Ralph Pucci, owner of the firm. 'The show will feature Pucci mannequins from the last 20 years.'

Pucci and Elle Decor will open the space with a party on Sept.15, as well as be host to James Thomas' fashion show that day.
