American High Style

Last night, I went to the opening of the American High Style exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. The highlight for me was, by far, getting up-close and personal with real, live Elsa Schiaparelli pieces. Schiaparelli is one of my all-time-favorite artists and fashion designers, being one of the only women who worked with the Dada and surrealist artists, (you know the shoe hat? That's her). Her work is beautiful and timeless, and if it were up to me, I would've walked right out of the museum with the butterfly parasol and gown.

There are original pieces by Charles Frederick Worth, Gabrielle Chanel, Halston, the first generation of American Women designers including Claire McCardell, Halston, Christian Dior, Madeleine Vionnet, and more.

The exhibit will be open to the public on May 7, 2010.
