Fabulous Fashion – From Dior’s New Look to Now
Philadelphia Museum of Art
October 16, 2018 - March 3, 2019
Experience the drama and glamour of some of the most creative feminine fashions ever designed, from romantic ball gowns to audacious contemporary ensembles, and everything in between. See how designers have used color and pattern, shape and volume, draping, metallics, and embellishments to continually reinvent the art form. The pieces in the exhibition—daywear, bridal wear, and more—showcase the Museum’s outstanding costume collection. Many are on view for the first time.
Ellsworth Kelly’s dress, among the designs featured in this exhibition, was fabricated by designer Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein in collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute in 2012.[More Information]
