Fashion Exhibitions in NYC

To mark the new relationship with between the Brooklyn Museum and the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum partnered with Polyvore , the leading fashion  and social shopping platform, to fashionably remix history!

The exhibition, American High Style: Fashioning a National Collection, will begin tomorrow May 7th, and run until August 1, 2010.  American High Style will consist of approximately 85 dressed mannequins and a selection of hats, shoes, sketches and other fashion related material that will reintroduce the collection, long in storage, to the public. Polyvore will provide museum goers with digital styling tools to remix images from the exhibition live in the gallery, as well as online, to create and share their own interpretations of American High Style. This exhibition, will document the development of the Brooklyn Museum costume collection from its inception in the early 20th century to its function as a working design lab, and its development into one of the premier costume collections in the country.
So if you happen to visit NYC this summer, make sure you do it “in style” and absorb the "History of Fashion" by checking out the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity, on view May 5, 2010 – August 15, 2010; and head over to Brooklyn to see American High Style: Fashioning a National Collection, on view May 7 2010 – August 1, 2010.
