Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Where fashion meets style is the theme for the new Where Fashion Meets Style exhibition at the Met Museum of Art. This New York City museum houses the largest permanent Western Hemisphere art collection. The museum’s permanent collection is divided into 17 curatorial departments. Visitors can experience fashion history and style through works by famous designers and artists. This exhibition is sure to inspire and delight. Whether you love high fashion or prefer more classic looks, you’ll find something you’ll love at the exhibition.
The Met galleries invited nine film directors to participate in the exhibition, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Autumn de Wilde, Chloe Zhao, Radha Blank, and Julie Dash. Each director’s film will visualize a single-frame movie interpreting an aspect of American fashion. The exhibition also features works by designers such as Tom Ford and Charlotte Rampling. Where Fashion Meets Style is a must-see for anyone who appreciates fashion and culture.
The Met Fashion Show will run until September 5, 2014, during the museum’s 75th-anniversary celebration. It will feature more than 200 pieces of contemporary American fashion and will be the largest fashion exhibition in recent history. The museum’s next major exhibitions include “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” and Kimono Style: The John C. Weber Collection. Once you’ve seen them, you’ll be a true fashion nerd!
The exhibit celebrates the contributions of the country’s emerging designers. It will showcase the work of undiscovered fashion designers and honor established designers’ achievements. Those with more modest collections are also welcome. While the exhibition is a great way to learn more about American design and culture, it is a valuable place to start. For instance, if you love classic pieces, you might want to start with the works of American designers.
The first part of the show, ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ centered on early nineteenth-century dressmakers and designers, is still on view at The Met. However, ‘Anthology of Fashion’ features more obscure designers and lays a broader foundation for American fashion history. The exhibition will be airlifted to the American Wing period rooms. The costumes will be displayed alongside works from the American Wing.
WWD Weekend cover shoot
In this WWD Weekend cover shoot, style and fashion combine in an urban setting. A pleated black floor-length dress with asymmetric hemline by designer Miles Socha is paired with oversized leather thigh-high boots. This minimalist look is complemented with cool dark energy. In addition, each outfit is completed with a pair of statement jewelry and a clutch. The overall effect is edgy, urban, and effortlessly cool.
Meanwhile, the July 2022 cover shoot was inspired by retro styles and was full of nostalgic inspiration. The mix-and-match pattern-filled designs screamed out nostalgia, while the bold statement headpiece re-interpreted the dress codes of the day. This cover also features Demna, a 90s-inspired designer who teamed up with director Harmony Korine for the shoot, inspired by a Balenciaga show.
Simone Rocha’s fall collection explored nostalgic style, while the Oscar de la Renta cover featured a painting-style floral sheer cape. Carolina Elera wore an 80’s-inspired silk mini dress, while Ulla Johnson introduced a 90s twist to American fashion. The contrasting colors and patterns infused the WWD Weekend cover shoot with style. The models also took a moment to pose in various poses, uniquely capturing the fashion world’s diversity.
Designers with a strong sense of nostalgia
In a time where global fashion is in a state of flux, where nostalgia reigns supreme, it is no surprise that designers have turned to the past to reinvent their collections. The July 2022 WWD Weekend cover shoot was no exception, and it featured bold statement headpieces and innovative pattern mixing to create new looks. The collection’s nostalgic theme was also echoed in the style and presentation of the clothes, which blurred the lines between old-fashioned and avant-garde.
While this generation’s sense of nostalgia is based on a generation that did not grow up in a distinctly pre-internet world, it can also be a risky strategy. The ’90s were not idyllic and were marked by the Y2K fears of the millennium, race riots in Los Angeles following Rodney King’s beating, the Kosovo War, and a debate over gay military service.
For example, the Nineties Anxiety Instagram cult is growing rapidly, with a large following and influencers struggling to develop new ideas. While the site’s name is quite apt, the vogue has been around for a few years. The founder, Beth Buenaventura, attended the University of Pittsburgh, where she studied fashion and marketing. After graduating, she decided to launch her first mobile store and later a brick-and-mortar store in New York City.
The trend’s origins can be traced to a Greek emigre academic named Constantine Sedikides. Born in Greece, Sedikides worked for many years at the University of North Carolina before moving to the University of Southampton, England, in 1999. There, he was assigned the role of a social psychology professor. This research sparked the nostalgia trend that carries on to this day.
As new-age consumers look for greater transparency, they are willing to make meaningful buying decisions. The new consumer wants to relive her personality through her product selection. In response, the new landscape has given rise to newer brands that take old age practices and rituals seriously and add nostalgic packaging to their products. A great example of this trend in action is the Pokémon GO app. This mobile game combines an iconic story with the benefits of augmented reality, which successfully fulfills both criteria.
