Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip

Wednesday, November 22–Sunday, April 1
11:00 am–6:00 pm
Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Avenue at 105th Street

Explores the full arc of fashion of the 1960s, a period marked by tremendous and daring stylistic diversity. Through more than 70 garments, trace the dramatic transformation in clothing between 1960 and 1973, not only in length and silhouette, but also in materials and methods of textile manufacture. Works by designers as diverse as Mary Quant, Geoffrey Beene, and Pauline Trigère illuminate the communicative powers of fashion in the ’60s—reflecting cultural trends from Beatlemania to Pop and Op Art to infatuation with the “space race,” and social changes like the women’s liberation movement and the radicalism of the counterculture and antiwar movements. Also on display are fine and costume jewelry, shoes, handbags, design renderings, and photographs that capture the spirit of a creative and confrontational era.

Free with museum admission (Get 2 tickets for $15)
