Patricia Mears at the Guggenheim Museum

On December 7, 2010, Patricia Mears, Deputy Director of The Museum at FIT, gave a lecture inspired by fashion in the Guggenheim Museum's exhibition Chaos and Classicism. Between the world wars, women such as Madeleine Vionnet dominated fashion design in Paris and New York. Charting the embrace of classicism, Mears discussed clothing innovations that defined fashion in the 1930s, how they changed the course of modern dress, and continue to influence couture today.
