Inside the Met’s New Female-Focused Costume Exhibit – CR Fashion Book

Spanning over four sections, each with their own unique theme, the exhibition will invite guests to take a walk through female fashion history. To begin, the exhibit will look at the condition of anonymity in order to spotlight the anonymous dressmakers that built the foundation for today’s eponymous designers. Guests will then find themselves in the Carl and Iris Barrel Apfel Gallery where they will look at fashion as a vehicle for women’s financial, social, and creative autonomy. The exhibition will continue on in the Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch Gallery in order to explore the lineage of female designers and exemplify how fashion has served as a place of political and bodily expression. To finish off, the exhibit will close by shedding light on the designers who have failed to receive credit for their role in fashion history such as Anne Lowe, who designed Jaqueline Bouvier’s wedding dress for her marriage to John F. Kennedy.

Charting the impact of female designers throughout history, the new costume exhibit is as educational as it is jaw dropping. With so many incredible pieces from talented and influential designers, the “Women Dressing Women” exhibit is definitely a must-see.

The “Women Dressing Women” exhibit will be open from Dec. 7 to March 3, 2024.
