This pro-abolition quilt designed in 1843 by American fashion designer, Maria Hollander can be seen in the Haverhill Room at “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” Metropolitan Museum of Art Exhibition. The designer leveraged her business success to engage with issues of fundamental importance in her day, including abolition, women’s rights. and, later, she went on to advocate women’s suffrage.   The words say “WE GOOD THX!”  According to film maker Radha Blank, ”Black women were often uncredited as cultural weavers of the fabric of this country.”  This Costume Institute exhibition opens to the public in the  American Wing at the Met Museum, on Saturday, May 7, until September 5., 2022. To see 36 photos of the Exhibition, CLICK HERE

Met Museum Battle Versailles Fashion - 2022

Photos: Helen Oppenheim.

One of the stand-out rooms at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” exhibition in the American Wing is the “Battle of Versailles” room – where Tom Ford has reimagined what happened in 1973, when the top French designers faced off against the top American designers. It is great fun, not captured as well as it could be with my iPhone.  This is Part 2 of the Costume Institute’s exhibition exploring fashion in America and it opens for the public on Saturday, May 7.  Part 1, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” will continue in the Anna Wintour Costume Center at The Met until September 5, 2022, when both exhibitions will close.  To see 36 photos of the Exhibition, CLICK HERE

Comme des Garçons @ Met Closes Sept 4 – 2017

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

Last chance. The great Rei Kawakubo/Commes des Garçon: Art of the In-Between exhibition closes September 4. If you haven’t seen the must-see exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, you must see it. You can have free admission at the Met on Fridays from 5-9 pm, and there will be a dance party on September 1 with music by DJ Reborn in the American Wing Café following a fashion design contest and a panel discussion with focus on street style as a global phenomenon. But you can see the exhibition before or after, until Monday, September 4.  This photo shows one of the amazing Julien d’Ys hair designs.
