Fashion in Colors

Fashion in Colors at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum

On view December 9, 2005–March 26, 2006 in New York City.

Fashion in Colors explores color as a design element through 300 years of Western clothing, examining the changing perceptions and meanings of color through various eras. More than 60 costumes are on display, ranging from eighteenth-century court gowns to couture creations by twentieth-century masters such as Balenciaga, Vionnet, Chanel, and Watanabe. It is a riot of color and (mostly) light-hearted clothing -- just the thing to brighten up your mood on an otherwise dreary March day. But you better go soon -- the fashion show ends on March 26th.
