If you happen to be headed toward the Philadelphia region during the upcoming holidays, there are two exhibitions of interest at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now highlights the museum’s costume collection, with many pieces on view for the first time. The show includes over seven decades of fashion and includes work by Pierre Cardin, Issey Miyake, and Vera Wang among many others.
Also on view is Little Ladies: Victorian Fashion Dolls and the Feminine Idea, a small show “starring four extraordinary dolls and their extravagant wardrobes.” The exhibit demonstrates Victorian fashion through these dolls’ clothing and accessories. Both exhibits are on view until March 3, 2019.
