Cinderella, was your glass slipper Louboutin? Is Little Red wearing an Alexander McQueen cape? Wait–is that the Snow Queen in haute couture?!
Fairy Tale Fashion is an enchanted display where fantasy fairy tales meet realistic, high fashion garments and accessories (dating from the 18th century to present day). This fashion exhibit highlights 15 classic fairy tale stories including “Cinderella,” “Snow White,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Alice in Wonderland,” and “Rapunzel.” Ornate, embellished, and playful, each piece is also truly unique. Designers include Alexander McQueen, J. Mendel, Christian Louboutin, Noritaka Tatehana, Charles James, Thierry Mugler, Manish Arora, and many more. In this exhibit, one is able to appreciate the magical blur between fantasy and reality through a high fashion perspective.
Fairy Tale Fashion is on display through April 16, 2016. Learn more about the exhibit here. #fairytalefashion
