GRAHAM — Designer Isaac Mizrahi once said that "more than any single designer, Kenneth Block gave New York fashion its sophistication."

Original works by Block, as well as other designers in the late designer's collection, will be on display Aug. 16 through Oct. 20 in the exhibit, "Reflections of Elegance: Kenneth Paul Block and the Masters of Fashion Illustration," at Alamance Arts, 213 S. Main St.

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

The show is curated by the Kenneth Paul Block Foundation, which is the holder of the most extensive archive of the designer's artwork.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. For more details, call 336-226-4495 or visit www.alamancearts.org.
