Last Call: Fashion A-Z, Part Two

A Rick Owens ensemble from 2011, left, and a 1929 dress by Jean Patou, right.

Tomorrow is the final day to see the excellent exhibit Fashion, A-Z: Highlights from the Collection of The Museum at FIT, Part Two at The Museum at FIT.

Some of these gorgeous dresses (and coats) are just what the doctor ordered as a mood lifter after all the recent woes in New York City so I thought I’d share these pictures with you.

Dresses by Pierre Balmain, 1952, left and Oscar de la Renta for Balmain, 2002, right.

A dreamy Chantilly lace dress by Olivier Theyskens for Rochas, 2004.

A 2004 Carolina Herrera dress on the left and a 1950 dress by Hollywood designer Irene, right.

A 1970 coat by Calvin Klein, left, and a 2008 coat by Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein, right. Both are FIT graduates!

These are stunning! You're so good about making the time to see these exhibitions! You've reminded me I need to get my behind into gear and get to the V&A to see the Hollywood exhibition!

Hello New York!
All these dresses are phenomenal. It proves that gorgeous creations are timeless. Some of these vintage models are to die for. I would pick the 1929 Jean Patou dress... if I only I was asked which one I want...Then I would cut my hair "the Bob" way (just read M-T fun's post) and I would dream being in "Midnight in Paris"....
Thanks for sharing these beauties.
xoxo from the sunshine state,
Anne (Playing with Scarves)

Hi Jill--just stopping by to say HI!
I've noticed a trend in exhibits with this grey background--they did it for the hats exhibit here at the PEM. I am not a fan. It seems logical, neutral background, but for me it makes the exhibit seem OLD. What say you?

With all these lovely fashion exhibits in NY, I know I MUST COME and visit the city very soon! What a beautiful post, as always, dear Jill! xo
