I’m not affiliated with this event but I thought it was worth sharing. I used to buy vintage a LOT in a time gone by and this sale looks great to me, if you are a collector or if you just like to look at high style. Plus, they have a special exhibition, “Almost Dior: America’s Stamp On The New Look” From their site: “In February 1947, Christian Dior’s first major collection hit the runway in what has become one of the most important events in fashion history. The New Look, as it was referred to, was made up of long, full skirts with a nipped waist, rounded shoulders and exaggerated bust lines. The appeal in the swish of long skirts and the allure of curvaceous shapes did not come without a high price though. This exhibit shows American designers and manufactures from the early 1950’s such as, Ceil Chapman, Suzy Perette and Dan Millstein, who began producing affordable versions of the Parisian designs. These quality interpretations could be found in regular department stores or boutiques, thus on a slim budget of fifty or sixty dollars someone in America could emulate the look of a glamourous Parisienne.” Chic! At The Metropolitan Pavilion today and tomorrow. Go here for tickets and more info.
