The Metropolitan Museum of Art is currently hosting an exhibition on designer Paul Poiret (he of the fabulous Orientalist designs of the 1910s). Oh to get to NYC! In the meantime, check out the exhibition details, some photos of the exhibition on Flickr, and what appears to be a Poiret-inspired photo shoot in the May 2007 issue of Vogue. I had a chance to flip through the hefty exhibition catalog at the Museum of Costume in Bath and can report that it looks really nicely done, and shall be at the top of my Christmas list this year. If anyone makes it, take lots of pictures!
