Sewing Events and Style ExhibitionsThese events and exhibitions are bound to inspire your sewing.
In the last few weeks, several people have told me about a cool sewing event or exhibition they attended. With more museums and exhibition halls fully reopening, we’re happy at Threads to resume our practice of sharing with you some of the most anticipated sewing events and gallery exhibitions—and, of course, exciting virtual events.
We will be editing and updating this page regularly, around the first of each month. We hope you enjoy getting back to sewing events and exhibitions as much as we do.
Opening March 19, 2022
Victoria & Albert Museum
This exhibition explores how designers, tailors and artists – and their clients and sitters – have constructed masculinity, and unpicked it at the seams.
The Museum at FIT
June 1, 2022 – November 6, 2022
“Dior + Balenciaga: The Kings of Couture and Their Legacies features fashions by the two most important couturiers of the mid-20th century, Christian Dior (1905–1957) and Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895–1972). Featuring approximately 65 garments and ensembles drawn solely from The Museum at FIT’s permanent collection, it is the first exhibition to juxtapose the work of these legendary designers, side by side.”
“Invisible Seams shares the stories of eight different Asian seamstresses and pattern-makers in New York, bringing to the fore the experiences of these frontline workers of the fashion industry, whose voices are too often overlooked. These women have weathered the pandemic, the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes, trials of immigration, and the never-ending demands of fashion cycles. Invisible Seams is a celebration of their talent and expertise, an acknowledgment that their devotion to their craft is also a means of survival.”
