Cocktail Culture Ritual and Invention in American Fashion, 1920–1980

Cocktail Culture: Ritual and Invention in American Fashion, 1920-1980  is the first multi-disciplinary exhibition to explore the social ritual of the cocktail hour through the lens of fashion and design.

Organized by the RISD Museum of Art’s Department of Costume and Textiles, Cocktail Culture features stunning fashion apparel from Balenciaga to Schiaparelli, jewelry, textiles, decorative and fine art, film, photographs, and more. More than 220 objects are included, drawn from the Museum’s vast holdings and loans from other museums and private collections. 

I am so there this weekend! I love vintage clothes, especially clothes and style of the 50’s!

Two of My Style Icons:

Who Wore Pants and the Button Up Shirt Better? WHO?
