Armani Privé, Fall 2007
|This dress features 100,000 "Diamond Leaf" Swarovski crystals, designed by Armani.|
Tuesday, May 8 is the final day to see the lovely and informative exhibit Fashion, A-Z: Highlights from the Collection of the Museum at FIT, Part One. It really is a trip down fashion memory lane with the inclusion of so many designers, both famous and not-so-famous, from the last century to today, and every piece is from the museum’s permanent collection. Can you imagine?
Part Two of the exhibit opens May 23 and I can hardly wait to see what young curators Jennifer Farley and Colleen Hill have selected to put on display. I can tell you for sure that there are vintage Christian Dior and Charles James gowns I cannot wait to see!
