Artist/Rebel/Dandy – Men of Fashion

RISDMensEx_oldphotoI visited the RISD Museum during July’s ‘Gallery Night’.  Very popular exhibit on men’s fashion.  I was intrigued by the ‘plaid-design’ and how decades later, PLAID is still a very stylish pattern and fashion-plate not only in men’s fashion but for women as well.  RISD continues to use multimedia in their exhibits (which I like) and some ‘hands-on’ stations as well.  Nicely done.

The 2 most ‘stand-out’ pieces for me: A wig and Ferragamo shoes worn by Andy Warhol and a suit? (actually top hat and tails) worn by Fred Astaire.
