First Wednesday Art Talk – Fashioning San Francisco: A Century of Style
Fashion has been a major focus of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s exhibitions since the opening of the new de Young in 2005. Fashioning San Francisco: A Century of Style offers the opportunity to explore a facet of our city through the Museum’s significant collection of twentieth and twenty-first century women’s high fashion and haute couture. This exhibition will
be the first major presentation of the Museum’s costume collection in over three decades. Featuring outstanding works by Gabrielle Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Issey Miyake, and Alexander McQueen, Fashioning San Francisco: A Century of Style will reflect the city’s international sophistication, bohemian tendencies, appreciation of global cultures, and long-standing practice of using clothing as a form of personal expression.
FAMSF Docent: Maureen Murry-Fox
