“A Queer History of Fashion” featured in FastCoDesign

September 13, 2013


FastCoDesign’s Carey Dunne summarizes the highlights of “A Queer History of Fashion: From the Closet to the Catwalk,” an exhibition designed by JSA, in her article A New Exhibition Plays Tribute to Fashion’s Queer History. Spanning 300 years and featuring 100 ensembles, from the foppish ‘macaroni’ menswear of the 18th century to Gaultier’s cone bras and skirts for men, the show is the first to examine fashion history through a queer lens. This groundbreaking exhibition is on view at MFIT until Jan 4, 2014.
