Fashioning Fashion

Two Centuries of European Fashion, 1700–1915
Les Arts Décoratifs is hosting the prestigious exhibition previously shown at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Deutsch Historisches Museum in Berlin. Fashioning Fashion: Two Centuries of European Fashion 1700–1915 celebrates LACMA’s acquisition of the remarkable collections of Martin Kamer and Wolfgang Ruf, both antique dealers and collectors of ancient costumes and fabrics. Their collections reflect the principal trends in fashion in Europe from the 18th century to the early 20thcentury. Presented chronologically and thematically, almost a hundred complete men's and women's outfits, mainly from France, England and Italy, and all with their accessories, retrace the evolution of vestimentary taste, forms and techniques.
