Eastern Inspiration: The Costume Institute Exhibit at the Met



I finally stopped by China: Through the Looking Glass, this summer’s Costume Institute exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The exhibit explores Chinese culture’s influence on fashions—in the East and in the West—over the centuries. Over 140 garments, many created by well-known designers like Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs, are displayed in rooms on three floors. To emphasize the connection between culture and fashion, the garments are juxtaposed with Chinese paintings, films, porcelains and other objects. Don't you love the influence of Chinese porcelain on the garments above and below?



Although photography is allowed in the exhibition, the room lighting is often dimmed for dramatic effect. Nevertheless, I took a few snapshots to share with readers who may not be able to attend this wonderful exhibit.

I remember when the choices were simple: Lee, Levis or Wranglers. Well, times have changed. Denim isn’t just for cowboys and rock […]

STRIPED TO THE MAX

STRIPED TO THE MAX
  Maxi dresses. Anyone who reads fashion magazines knows that they are the “go to” outfit for summer. They’re pretty, easy and very wearable….and for some reason I don’t ever wear them. I buy them, they sit in my closet for a few seasons, and then I pawn them off on my daughter. I don’t […]

STRUCTURED LEATHER

STRUCTURED LEATHER
  Downtown Vegas is currently the place be and be seen. My latest discovery is the wonderfully named Itsy Bitsy Ramen & Whiskey. It’s a hip and trendy hotspot, so when my daughter and her friends invited me to join them on a girls night out, I decided to step up my game and wear something edgier […]

HAVING A BALL

HAVING A BALL
  Sportswear as a fashion trend has never really resonated with me. I live in heels and I’m not particularly a fan of the word “sweat.” If I’m honest, activewear has always struck me as a bit utilitarian, and not at all pretty or chic. I don’t know what happened, but something suddenly changed this […]
