    Lost in Fashion Bliss... The Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute goes online

    One of the best things about being lucky enough to grow up in NYC is to regularly visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Even luckier, is to have a yen for fashion and the privilege to visit its Costume Institute, starting from back in the day that Diana Vreeland ruled.

    The Costume Institute’s recent renovation makes viewing the fashion exhibitions even more spectacular but for those who cannot make it to Manhattan or crave some deskside drooling and inspiration, WWD reports this morning that 29,432 items from the Costume Institute’s impressive collection 31,000-piece collection of clothing and objects have been photographed and cataloged into an online database.
