    Here’s a fashion treat for those of you in the city this holiday weekend or in the next 2 months.

    The Brooklyn Museum, it’s an incredible museum that’s just a few train stops out of Manhattan, marks its new relationship with the Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with an exhibition of some of the most renowned objects from its esteemed costume collection.

    The fashion exhibition consists of approximately eighty-five dressed mannequins and a selection of hats, shoes, sketches, and other fashion-related material that will reintroduce the collection, long in storage, to the public

    American High Style is organized in groups representing the most important strengths of the collection. Works by the first generation of American women designers such as Bonnie Cashin, Elizabeth Hawes, and Claire McCardell are featured, as well as material created by Charles James, Norman Norell, Gilbert Adrian, and other important American designers. Also included are works by French designers who had an important influence on American women and fashion, such as Charles Frederick Worth, Elsa Schiaparelli, Jeanne Lanvin, Jeanne Paquin, Madeleine Vionnet, and Christian Dior
