Is Fashion Art? You'll Find The Answer HERE!

Is fashion art?
It was be a question that troubled museum curators for decades.
But now the debate is over. 
Fashion is indeed art and in many cases it's art of the highest order.
For proof of that look no further than the Philadelphia Museum of Art's dazzling new exhibit
Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now, on view through March 3.
This show allows you to experience the drama and glamour of some of the most creative feminine fashions ever designed, from romantic ball gowns to audacious contemporary ensembles, and everything in between. You'll also see how designers have used color and pattern, shape and volume, draping, metallics, and embellishments to continually reinvent the art form. The show is divided into these categories and it's both instructive and inspiring.
The pieces in the exhibition—daywear, bridal wear, and more—showcase the Museum’s outstanding costume collection. Many are on view for the first time.
We've seen the exhibition and we highly recommend it! You'll need view fashion in the same way again.
