“In America: A Lexicon of American Fashion”

The first of a two-part, year-long extravaganza, “In America: A Lexicon of American Fashion” ​​​​​​ is organized into 12 sections that attempt to express the emotional qualities in American style. American fashion might have long been seen as commercial, but this fashion exhibition came to prove that fantasy and emotion are well-established qualities in fashion in America, as well.

It opens with a display of 100 garments dating from 1940 to the present day, et in an installation design inspired by a patchwork quilt. The fashion exhibition is formed of white scrimmed cases, a three-dimensional patchwork quilt, each containing a specimen of American fashion history. It assembles to an 1856 quilt in the museum’s American Wing created by Adeline Harris Sears featuring white silk diamond-shaped squares signed by some of the most famous Americans of the period.

American fashion has traditionally been described through the language of sportswear and ready-to-wear, emphasising principles of simplicity, practicality, functionality, and egalitarianism. Generally denied the emotional rhetoric applied to European fashion, American fashion has evolved a vernacular that tends to sit in direct opposition to that of the haute couture. Part One of “In America” addresses this linguistic imbalance by presenting a revised vocabulary of American fashion based on its expressive qualities.
