Cuban-American designer Narciso Rodriguez has reached a huge milestone in his career. Rodriguez has just been given the honor of displaying over 40 items of his designs in a high-end art museum.

According to FOX News Latino, Rodriguez has opened an exhibit at Miami’s Patricia & Philip Frost Art Museum to give the public insight into his creative process.

“Narciso Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism,” which opened on Saturday, “reveals the designer’s rigorous adherence to his exquisite vision and the highly intellectual approach he employs to create pure, sleek and timeless garments,” a museum representative tells the site.

Located on the main campus of Florida International University, the exhibit is open to students and the general public. This is the museum’s first devoted exhibit showcasing fashion.

Rodriguez, a native of Newark, New Jersey, made headlines for his innovative designs when he created the wedding dress that Carolyn Bessette wore when she married John Kennedy, Jr., in 1966. Ever since then, the rest was history.

The 55-year-old designer said he felt “touched and moved” by the Frost Musuem’s decision to honor his “life’s work and passion” for fashion.

Rodriguez’s creations have also been worn by first lady Michelle Obama and actresses Sarah Jessica Parker and Claire Danes and countless others.

The designer established his atelier in New York in 2001, and presented his Fall/Winter ready to wear collection that year. He became the first designer to receive consecutive Womenswear Designer of the Year awards by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2002 and 2003.

In May 2012, Rodriguez was voted one of the five most influential Latinos in America by El Museo del Bario in New York and received its prestigious Award for Excellence in the Arts.

“Narciso Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism” will be running until January 8th.
