I checked out the new exhibit at FIDM LA today. The collection ranged from the sublime, like this peacock muff (there's a matching hat too)
To the ridiculous "Everything grows bigger in California" 1950s novelty boxer shorts with a ruler on the fly! And a few things that skirted both - like the black uber vampy 1940s evening gown made by Adrian for a client to wear to her son's bar mitzvah! And this crazy yet cool 19teens black bat mourning hat (no real bats were harmed, th faces are fabricated):
The show runs from now until December 17th. Photography is not allowed but you can fork over $85 to get the huge full color illustrated catalogue which also includes many pieces not in the exhibit.
