Inside The 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Big hair, bejeweled bras and bionic abs–last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was a spectacle of hyperbole to rival the inhuman verticality of the underwear brand’s push-up bras. Forty-seven models decked out in 75 different looks strutted the catwalk in front of a star-studded crowd that included Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, who came to support 20-year-old model daughter Kendall in her Victoria’s Secret debut. Like all good fashion shows, the event started 45 minutes late. Hairspray and air kisses hung thick in the large hall at... [Lire la suite]

7 Old Timey Accessories That Need To Make A Comeback

What is an ensemble without the details? Sometimes the subtlety of a look is its greatest strength, which is something we can observe in old timey accessories. Think about it: If your outfit is a pizza, the accessories are definitely the toppings. Just like pizza with anchovies is very different than pizza with mushrooms, that little black dress exudes distinct character when paired with sparkly shoes, long white gloves, a fringe purse, or all of the above. Even though women’s fashion has gone through so many transformations —corsets... [Lire la suite]

A simple garment that changed women's fashion

Shirtwaists are among the many garments, feathers and hats that are on display in the Museum’s Ladies Dress Shop. These three garments resemble blouses decorated with embroidery, and this case, black trim. But the shirtwaists are more than just garments. They are a sign of a far-reaching revolution, not just in fashion, but also for working women in the 19th century. The shirtwaist first appeared in the 1860s as an alternative to the matched skirt and bodice worn by nearly all well-dressed women. Modeled after a man’s shirt, the... [Lire la suite]

Fashion And Virtue

Throughout history, historians have always viewed textiles within their economic context rather than their place in fashion. However, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibit “Fashion and Virtue,” does just that. It takes the seemingly simplistic development of textile pattern books in the 1520s and charts their progress in influencing the way fashion is disseminated to this day.
