Exhibits! Exhibits!

Below are a couple of exhibits to check out which I found out about via the Costume Society of America.


Design Trends in Sophisticated Clothes –Couture Ensembles by Pierre Cardin, 1964 – 2002
Through October 31 at the Preservation Society of Newport County (Rhode Island). The exhibit will display loyal client Diane Vernes Brown’s custom-fitted creations, forming a comprehensive overview of Cardin’s designs. Comprising evening dresses, cocktail dresses, suits, coats and accessories, the collection ranges widely in style and line, while retaining the precise tailoring, brilliant colors and luxurious materials for which Cardin became celebrated.
