In Pursuit of Fashion Part 1 Met Museum

A wonderful fashion exhibit at the Met now on view until May 17, 2020 gives you plenty of time to enjoy the works of fashion art. 

From the Met's website: 

The Costume Institute's fall 2019 exhibition features promised gifts from Sandy Schreier, a pioneering collector, who over the course of more than half a century assembled one of the finest private fashion collections in the United States. The show explores how Schreier amassed a trove of twentieth-century French and American couture and ready-to-wear, not as a wardrobe, but in appreciation of this form of creative expression.

The gift is part of The Met's 2020 Collections Initiative celebrating the Museum's 150th anniversary. In Pursuit of Fashion features approximately 80 of the 165 promised gifts, including womenswear, accessories, and fashion illustrations dating from a 1908 pochoir album, Les Robes de Paul Poiret, developed in collaboration with Paul Iribe to a 2004 Phillip Treacy butterfly hat.

This is really a lovely exhibit showcasing many designers and some items where the designer is not even known! A real treat for the eye! 

Beautiful draping going on here

 I just love anything with embroidery
