Sun-Drenched Style: California Mid-Century Women Designers

WHEN:

From November 12th 2016 to June 10th 2017
Closed Now, Booking Required

WHERE:

FIDM Orange County, 17590 Gillette Avenue, Irvine, 92614

WHAT:

"Glamourous, colorful, and full of leisurely fun: California in the mid-twentieth century was as much a lifestyle as a location. Seen as a destination for golden opportunity and new ideas, designers, artists, and architects embraced the freedom and modernity of California culture. As suburbia expanded, outdoor activities and home entertaining increased, creating high demand for casual-chic attire that transitioned from poolside to dining room. The five women designers featured in this exhibition used their uniquely West Coast points-of-view to create the wardrobe staples of the modern lifestyle. Louella Ballerino, Agnes Barrett, Margit Fellegi, Addie Masters, and Rose Marie Reid designed swimsuits, patio pajamas, play clothes, and relaxed separates that defined the quintessential mid-century California aesthetic."
