Fashioning Fashion @LACMA with CSA

*

I’m happy to report that the Western Region of the Costume Society of America will be hosting a behind-the-scenes tour of the much anticipated exhibition, Fashioning Fashion:European Dress in Detail, 1800-1915, on December 4 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (registration deadline is November 24). Vogue Magazine did a spread in a recent issue and took a video of the ‘behind the scenes’ action (below) and Art Daily is tempting potential visitors with the above photo of the installed exhibition. Those interested in the special CSA Tour will find the details on how to register below.

After a curatorial overview of the museum’s recent acquisition of a major collection of European men’s, women’s and children garments and accessories, view the exhibition. This exhibition tells the story of fashion’s aesthetic and technical development from the Age of Enlightenment to World War I. It also explores the sweeping changes that occurred in fashionable dress spanning a period of over two hundred years. We will also hold our annual meeting here. The CSA Annual Meeting will be held here as well.

Our special presentation will inform us about the exhibition and the major collection of European men’s, women’s and children’s garments and accessories from which it is drawn.
