Inspiration from the Sandy Schreier In “Pursuit Of Fashion Collection” currently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the Anna Wintour Costume Institute – to May 17, 2020.   See half a century of American and French Couture fashions, a gift from a private collector with a passion for fashion. Included,  Adrian 40s dresses, the armchair and rope hats, and many treasures by unknown designers.  The extraordinary fashions include designs by Fortuny, Vionett, Schiarparalli, Karl Lagerfeld, Philip Treacy and was started when Sandy Schrier was three years old.  Schreier once modeled for Vidal Sassoon but there is no hair – replaced by whimsical Stephen Jones head treatments.
