Met launching new costume exhibit

Opening at the Costume Institute of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, “About Time: Fashion and Duration” will feature a timeline of 125 fashions, dating back to 1870, exploring how clothes generate temporal associations that combine both past, present, and future. The costumes will be connected through shape, motif, material, pattern, technique, or decoration. Meanwhile, Virginia Woolf will serve as the ‘ghost narrator’ of the exhibition.
