Fashion Exhibition at the Western Reserve Historical Society
If you live in or near Cleveland, Ohio, or will be in town before the end of May, be sure to visit the Western Reserve Historical Society's "Dior & More: For the Love of Fashion" exhibition. Time is of the essence, as the exhibition closes on May 24; we just learned about this exhibit ourselves through a tip from Threads contributing editor Louise Cutting, who reports that this exhibition is showing some of the most beautiful garments she's ever seen.
"Dior & More" draws on 40 of the historical society's collection of luxury ready-to-wear garments designed by several prominent designers to provide an intimate look at women's changing lifestyles from the turn of the 20th century to the 1980s through fashion. The garments--designed by Christian Dior, Jacques Fath, Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, and Callot Soeurs, among others--are displayed in groups organized by time of day. If you can't make it to the exhibit before its closing, you can view a behind-the-scenes video tour on YouTube.
