German view of 'Fashioning fashion'

fashioning-fashion-berlin.jpgIn case you remember the exhibit at LACMA a couple of years ago on European clothing from 1700 to 1915, and a lot of Angelenos did go see that one, this might be of interest. The exhibition just today ended a run in Berlin. But the staging over there was quite different than here, as the LACMA blog explores. There's some cool behind-the-scenes detail on how such a show gets mounted.

"Fashioning fashion" was the exhibit where LA Observed asked longtime Hollywood costume designer Marlene Stewart to walk through with arts editor Judy Graeme and tell us about the clothing. Here's that video:

Stewart, by the way, has since been honored with an award for career achievement in film at the Costume Designers Guild Awards.
