LACMA Exhibit | Fashioning FashionWednesday, March 16, 2011
I've been in a very maxi-skirt mood lately. This msm keeps me looking fresh and flirty and perfectly in line with spring essentials and the shape of things to come. It's also my go-to uniform for everything from client/vendor meetings to all day shopping excursions to dinner and date night with the bf. Having spent the entire day in LA yesterday doing pretty much all of the above, I'm gonna break down this task force and bring you a three-piece project starting with my first raison d'être: Fashion, what else?
LACMA's (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) current exhibition "Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail" celebrates the bygone era when couturiers were considered technical artists and results from dressmaking became instant masterpieces.
This exhibition highlights everything from handmade textiles and trimmings to the evolution of European aesthetics through the ages starting from the Age of Enlightenment up until World War I. I've been DYING to see this exhibit up close and personal since last October and lemme tell ya, it did NOT disappoint. To be completely honest, it really put my $10 Forever 21 maxi to shame...a sign of our mass-produced times fo'sho. Ah well, c'est la vie!
