FABULOUS: Confessions of a Curator with Kevin Jones

March 28, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$20 – $30
FGI Dallas Fabulous with Kevin Jones

Fashion Group International of Dallas (“FGI”) will present a book signing and lecture by FIDM Fashion Institute Curator Kevin Jones at East & Orient Company on March 29, 2016.

Fabulous, currently available for purchase at Vintage Martini, is a catalog showcasing designs from the FIDM Museum in Los Angeles. “With a surge in extraordinary donations and purchases between 2000 and 2010, the FIDM Museum collection attained new eminence and richness, particularly in the areas of the 19th and 20th century haute couture, mid-20th century American designers, and international contemporary designers.

In assembling this collection, the museum has adhered to uncompromising standards and acquired only items distinguished by superior design, the highest level of craftsmanship, and the finest materials. The catalog contains 175 donated and purchased garments and accessories worn by women, men, and children spanning 1800 to 2010.

FABULOUS highlights include: a white gauze French empire gown, a luxurious embroidered court suit worn by composer Johann Hummel, a Redfern court gown with regulation eleven-foot-long train, and a museum-commissioned lace peacock motif Alexander McQueen couture gown.”

Tickets are available for purchase here with different pricing levels for members and non-members of FGI.
