Most little girls dream about becoming a Disney princess and living a fairy tale…oh wait, I was one of them! The good news is that I was able to re-live this fantasy a few months back while visiting my cousin in New York City. During my downtime, I decided to venture out to explore an exhibit held at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
The theme of it was "Fairy Tale Fashion" which depicted fifteen different fables in the lens of high-end fashion designers such as Marchesa, Alexander McQueen and Rodarte. Not only did these designers create pieces to represent each fairy tale, but they were also successful in including specific concepts (i.e. Cinderella's glass slipper) and captured a period-appropriate look.
It was all so beautiful…I think I almost shed a tear.
Here are a few of my favorite photos, not in any particular order:
Want to see it as well? Well you can't, sorry. The exhibit ended April 16, 2016. HOWEVER, this brings me to my next point. The MET Museum in NYC is having a really exciting exhibit which I also hope to experience. This is going to be on display May 5 through August 14.
This exhibit is about the history of traditional, hand-sewn haute couture all the way to fashion technology now which incorporates 3-D printing and ultrasonic welding. How awesome is that?
