Now- Feb. 5.
This is the last call to head to the Met to view The Costume Institute’s fall 2016 exhibition. The exhibition, in the Anna Wintour Costume Center, highlights approximately 60 masterworks from the early 18th century to the present that represent the highest aesthetic and technical quality, including iconic works by designers who have changed fashion history and advanced fashion as an art form. The Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch Gallery is organized chronologically with ensembles shown on platforms resembling oversized packing crates. Each object—primarily women’s wear, as well as some men’s wear ensembles and a selection of accessories—is accompanied by an in-depth explanation of its significance within the canon of fashion history.
