Death Becomes Her: Mourning fashions at the Met
I haven't seen this exhibit yet, but it is on my list! It features fashions worn during bereavement rituals in the 19th and early 20th centuries. If you find yourself in New York this winter you should check it out...
If you can't make it to New York, there are some images on the Met website, in this Vanity Fair review, in this The Cut review, and in this V Magazine review. Or check out this book I finished recently about the history of dress.
Have you been already? What did you think?
Death Becomes Her will be on view until February 1st, 2015 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
