I recently visited a fashion exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and was in awe of the beauty. The exhibit was called "Hollywood Glamour / Fashion and Jewelry From the Silver Screen". The exhibit displayed dresses and accessories worn by Hollywood actresses on the movie screen in the 20s and 30s.
The various gowns were designed by Chanel, Travis Banton and Adrian. The gowns were absolutely stunning. Many of the dresses were timeless. There was a black Chanel dress in particular that I was slightly drooling over.
In the back of the exhibit there was a giant screen playing various clips from the movies the gown on display were featured in. I was fascinated by the screens ability to alter the appearance of the dress. On the other side of the exhibit was jewelry and accessories worn during the 20s.
I love looking at fashion from previous eras. Fashion is always changing yet is also influenced from the past. It's amazing to see a dress that was made 90 years ago and could still be worn today.
The exhibit will be at the MFA through the beginning of March. If you have the opportunity to go before it closes, I would highly recommend it.
What do you think about the evolution of fashion?
