Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip
Museum of the City of New York
November 22, 2017 - April 1, 2018
A Mary Quant light brown wool jersey dress with orange sleeves and black trim
The world of fashion was turned on its head in the 1960s, as its traditions were challenged, rejected, and reimagined for the restless next generation. Beginning with the introduction of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy as a new American style icon and evolving over the course of the decade, fashions of the 1960s were legendary for their energy, their ingenuity, and their enduring appeal. Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip explores the full arc of 1960s fashion.

On January 18, join Phyllis Magidson (author of the exhibition's publication), Donald Albrecht, and Caroline Rennolds Milbank at RizzoIi Bookstore for a vibrant discussion of the Mod fashion style. RSVP to awilliams@mcny.org or call 917.492.3430.

The Museum at FIT loaned ten looks for Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip.
