Where the runway meets the street

An exploration of the American experience abroad, Shopping in Paris describes how the city of love influenced and inspired American dress from 1850-1925. The luxury of Lanvin is paired with American product of the period, pulling strings at a tale of chasing the latest foreign trends and keeping up appearances. Sure, the focus is on women, but that shouldn’t stop it being an educational fashion experience for blokes.

The exhibition is up in the Perelman Building at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to October.
