Model as Muse at the Metropolitan
The Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute is currently showing an exhibit entitled, Model as Muse which should pique the curiosity of anyone with an interest in the fashion industry. The show explores the relationship between high fashion clothing and its famous wearers, so on display side-by-side are fashion photography and designer apparel from 1947 - 1997. The curatorial talk (part 1 shown above)and some behind-the-scenes footage are available on the Met's YouTube Channel as a playlist, and more images can be seen on the exhibition's homepage.
