An exhibition called ITEMS: Is Fashion Modern? is currently being held at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), New York (until January 28th, 2018).
The fashion exhibition is a callback to MoMA's Are Clothes Modern? exhibition in 1944.
The exhibition was planned by Senior Curator and R&D Director Paola Antonelli and curatorial assistant Michelle Miller Fisher in MoMA's Department of Architecture and Design. It features 111 items that sparked new eras in fashion over the last 100 years, divided into sections such as size and form, technology, power, frugality and orthodox clothes and extreme clothes. Clothing design is examined from many different angles, with 30 of the 111 items selected to explore the questions What is fashion? and What is modern? through new prototypes created by artists, designers and technicians. One of the selected items are A-POC Queen series and our black turtleneck top.
