A great new exhibit opened on Friday at The Museum at FIT, juxtaposing, for the first time in a full exhibit, the work of YSL and Halston.
It’s an extremely timely exhibit, considering fashion’s current love affair with all things 70′s.
What makes this exhibit exciting to experience is how similar the work of these two designers actually is. It almost became a game I was playing with myself to guess which design was Halston, and which was YSL.
As I walked through other people were playing the same game-
“This one’s DEFINITELY Halston,” one friend would say to another.
The friend would stand by the descriptions off to the side and quip back, “…it’s YSL”.
“No!” Said the first.
It’s a beautiful exhibit, and a fun game to play.
