An invitation-only event to celebrate the exhibit Glamour Icons recognized the groundbreaking retrospective of iconic fragrance designs by Marc Rosen, which recognizes cosmetic packaging as an art form. The event and exhibition was held at the Nassau County Museum of Art, housed in one of the most important estates on Long Island’s gold coast, a former Frick mansion. The exclusive Champagne and High Tea party was hosted by Juliana Terian, President of Rallye Automotive Group, and the Museum’s Board of Trustees.

 

The Tea was sponsored by Rallye Automotive Group; the exhibition by Arkay Packaging, Pochet du Courval and Qualipac. The presidents of all four of these leading organizations—Juliana Terian, Arkay’s Mitchell Kaneff, Boris Zilkovic, and Eric Vanin– welcomed industry colleagues and celebrity guests.

 

The highlights of the exhibition include Rosen’s designs for Elizabeth Arden, Karl Lagerfeld, Chloe, Burberry, Perry Ellis. Jill Stuart, Elizabeth Arden, Ellen Tracy, Nina Ricci, Lucia Magnani, P&G Beaute, Joan Rivers, and Christiana Aguilera. A particularly moving moment in the exhibition features the extraordinary, multi-faceted glass orb bottle he designed for the perfume of his wife, film star Arlene Dahl. The exhibition also presents two of the porcelain collections he created for Elizabeth Arden Christmas at the beginning of his career based upon his collaborations with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton and the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, two of the world’s most elaborate monuments to ornament. Along with a rich trove of photos, memorabilia and personal items from his collection, the exhibition includes a selection of vintage perfume bottles that have inspired him on loan from the collection of Ken Leach.

A winner of seven Fragrance Foundation Awards, Rosen said, “I am so grateful to the Nassau County Museum of Art for this vernissage. As I see it, the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute did this with fashion years ago, and now it is our turn.”

A capstone to Rosen’s career, the exhibition is slated to travel to other museums around the country. “As with fashion design, the creation of cosmetic packing is an art form. Marc Rosen broke this barrier that for too long has separated the worlds of art and design, the Nassau County Museum of Art was privileged to have been the first venue for this important exhibition,” says Charles A. Riley II, PhD, the new Director of the Museum.

 

Among the guests were; Arlene Dahl and Marc Rosen, Carole and Philippe Delouvrier, Juliana Terian, Charles Riley (Museum Director), Peter Bacanovic, Yanna Avis, Mark and June Ackermann, Ruth Woolard, Catherine Adler and Alan Grubman, Lucia Magnani, Massimo Leonardelli, Annette Green, Robert Zimmerman, Eric Vanin (sponsor), Boris Zilkovic (sponsor), Mitchell Kaneff (sponsor), Somers and Jonathan Farkas, Sydney Weinberg, Scott Corzine and Anna Bergman, Susan Beer and Henry Bismuth, Susan Lloyd, and Firmenich’s Theo Spilka
