The Secret Life of Textiles: Synthetic Materials

WHEN:

March 6th 2017 to September 4th 2017
Paid Entry ($25.00)

WHERE:

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

WHAT:

"The 20th century saw unprecedented use of synthetic materials in all aspects of life. Fashion designers in particular were drawn to modern plastics for their unusual appearance and superior performance. Due to their unstable composition, however, these types of materials have shorter lifespans than natural fibers; some actually self-destruct.

"This exhibition, the third in a series at The Met focused on textile materials, features more than 40 ensembles and accessories from The Costume Institute's collection, along with a special section that illustrates the typical deterioration process of plastics that have been integrated into historic fashions, emphasizing the material's problematic behavior. Analytical images accompany selected objects, highlighting their physical properties."
