Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion

WHEN:

From November 8th 2016 to February 5th 2017
Paid Entry ($25.00)

WHERE:

The Met Fifth Avenue, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, 10028

WHAT:

The Costume Institute's fall 2016 exhibition will feature significant acquisitions of the past 10 years and explore how the department has honed its collecting strategy to amass masterworks of the highest aesthetic and technical quality, including iconic works by designers who have changed fashion history and advanced fashion as an art form. During the seven decades since The Costume Institute became part of The Met in 1946, that collecting strategy has shifted from creating a collection of Western high fashion that is encyclopedic in breadth to one focused on acquiring masterworks.
