The Wonderful World of Fashion

There is something new to discover this month in our large exhibit case in front of the staircase. We have selected some of our most beautiful fashion design books:

Our display was inspired by an exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art: Shopping in Paris: French Fashion 1850-1925.
It is on view through October 25, 2009 in the Spain Gallery at the Museum's Perelman building. The exhibit includes 35 garments and accessories, along with photographs and film clips from the early 20th century. The Perelman Building Library will present an accompanying exhibition: Something to Wear: Fashion in Print 1950-1925.
