Having had the opportunity to visit the new Resnick Pavilion at the LACMA museum in Los Angeles, I had to check out the exhibit entitled "Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700 - 1915".
Having recently acquired a profound collection of women's, men's, and children's garments and accessories from the Age of Enlightenment to World War I, the exhibit takes a detailed look at the evolution of textiles, trims, and tailoring over 200 years.
Definitely not to be missed. If you're in the LA area, be sure to visit this and the other exhibits at the new Resnick Pavilion.
Check out the "Fashioning Mannequins" post on the LACMA Blog for a detailed view of bringing this exhibit to life.
The exhibition is curated by Senior Curator Sharon S. Takeda and Curator Kaye D. Spilker and is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
