NYC fashion exhibitions

Going through the internet I found this short video showing two of the latest exhibitions currently open in New York. One is from the Brooklyn Museum and the other one, from the Metropolitan Museum. Since I've posting about the Met Ball planning and the red carpet I though it would be nice to see some of the things that are being exhibited inside the museum, so we can at least create an idea of what's the exhibition about.

The Brooklyn Museum is showing some of his private collection of costumes, where they focused on presenting different kinds of arquetypes of the American women. The curator, Jan Reeder explained who they wanted to show American womenswear designers, emphasizing in sportswear which have always been a trademark from U.S creatives, plus some pieces designed by european designer for customers in the country, like Dior, YSL and Chanel.

The Metropolitan Museum, opened its exhibition "American Woman: Fashioning a national identity" last monday, curated by Andrew Bolton, it's focused on how the American women always had a taste for the "casual sportive", to modernism. Also, it takes the audience to important fashion phases of history, like the flappers and the bohemian from years ago.

Here's the video, with each curator explaining their work for each exhibition.
