If you are anywhere near the Los Angeles area, we encourage you to go check out the Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700-1915 exhibit at LACMA.
The outfits featured are exquisite and the workmanship and detail of the fabrics are amazing.
From the website: “The exhibit celebrates the museum’s groundbreaking acquisition of a major collection of European men’s, women’s, and children’s garments and accessories. The exhibition tells the story of fashion’s aesthetic and technical development from the Age of Enlightenment to World War I. It examines sweeping changes in fashionable dress spanning a period of over two hundred years, and evolutions in luxurious textiles, exacting tailoring techniques, and lush trimmings.”
It is truly worth visiting and will be at LACMA until March 6, 2011. Click here for more information.
