The 1 2 C

If you go to 1 museum this summer, make it the Met.  The Costume Institute is hosting the new fashion exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art entitled The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion.  The event is made possible by Marc Jacobs as Honorary chair with Kate Moss, Justin Timberlake and Anna Wintour as c0-chairs.  The exhibit focuses on the relationship of high fashion designers and beauty icons who inspire them.

The exhibition starts with Christian Dior and the ‘New Look’ of the late 1940’s through muses and models of today.  The exhibit will highlight timeless beauties like Dovima, Dorian Leigh, Twiggy, Peggy Moffit, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and many more.  Not only will the model’s be profiled, but the revolutionary designers who used them to inspire and showcase their designs.

After taking 20th Century Style and Modern Design last year with Professor Michael Casey, I have a new appreciation for the relationship of designers and their muses.  Casey was a huge fan of these profound relationship through fashion history and made sure we got it.  I am so excited this exhibit is coming out now when I can really appreciate it, after studying it last semester.


The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion’s gala took place last night.  It opens to the public tomorrow.  It will be open May 6th through August 9th.  So, if you take a trip to the Met, make sure you make time for The Model as Muse exhibit and Maelstorm.  They are the 1’s 2 C.
