MADE IN MEXICO The Rebozo in Art, Culture & Fashion |

MADE IN MEXICO The Rebozo in Art, Culture & Fashion | | Vintage and Retro Style | Scoop.it

This summer the Fashion and Textile Museum stages the first-ever exhibition on the rebozo – the classic Mexican shawl made famous in 20th century culture by artist Frida Kahlo. Made in Mexico explores the key role textiles have played in promoting Mexican culture worldwide from the 17th century to the present day. Rebozos on display include major loans from: the Franz Mayer Museum, Mexico City; the Museum of Textiles, Oaxaca; the British Museum and rebozos from private collections that have never been shown in public before. Contemporary Mexican and UK artists, photographers, fashion and textile designers also present new work created in response to the rebozo and Mexican textiles – including Francisco Toledo, Graciela Iturbide, Carla Fernandez, Zandra Rhodes and Kaffe Fassett.

FIT - Fashion Institute of Technology | Denim: Fashion's Frontier | Vintage and Retro Style | Scoop.it
New York | 01.12.2015 - 07.05.2016
"Denim: Fashion’s Frontier explores the multifaceted history of denim and its relationship with high fashion from the 19th century to the present. The exhibition features more than 70 objects from the museum’s permanent collection, many of which have never been on view. In addition to the history of jeans, Denim examines a variety of denim garments—from work wear to haute couture—in order to shed new light on how a particular style of woven cotton has come to dominate the clothing industry and the way people dress around the globe."
