The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Fabulous Exhibit

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Kutztown chapter.


The fashion week of London, New York, Paris and Milan have come to an end. If you’re anything like me, then you’re probably sitting on the couch with a bowl of ice cream, crying that the last model has walked the catwalk. However, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is here to rescue you from your distress. So, dry those tears, grab your most fashionable outfit and head down to the city to get your passion for fashion fix at the museum’s newest exhibit.

The museum has a display called, Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now. This glamorous exhibit will be open until March 3, 2019.

The exhibit showcases seven years of style (from 1947 to 2012) and highlights the creativity of the designers’ choice of color, pattern, volume, and shape. Any visitor can expect to see such iconic labels as Adrian, Chanel, Geoffrey Beene, Zandra Rhodes and many more. If you’re someone who only knows the most popular designers, don’t worry they even have Vera Wang and Francesco Costa of Calvin Klein.

The articles of clothing ranges from ballgowns, to bridal wear, to punk-inspired pieces, ruffled skirts, patterns and everything in between. Many of the unique styles include a metallic dress made up of plastic discs and a gold mini-dress that shows glamour and sensuality. If you’re a Grace Kelly fan, I suggest you go to the exhibit because her wedding headpiece and shoes are included in this display.

This exhibit will keep your mind busy until the next fashion week begins. So, if you’re in need of the perfect fashion fix or just want to look at how fashion has changed over the years, grab your tickets and head over to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I know  I will be there.
