I’m pretty pumped because we just announced that the Cincinnati Art Museum is now the official Art Museum of Cincy Chic. That means we’re going to get the insider’s perspective on upcoming exhibitions, events and we even have a columnist from CAM now writing a monthly column in Cincy Chic!
And what a way to kick off the relationship — they have an amazing new fashion exhibition The Total Look: The Creative Collaboration between Rudi Gernreich, Peggy Moffitt and William Claxton.
Check out more info below about it! I definitely can’t wait to see it!
The Total Look: The Creative Collaboration Between Rudi Gernreich, Peggy Moffitt and William Claxton
February 28, 2015 to May 24, 2015
Known by most for designing the topless bathing suit in 1964, Rudi Gernreich was one of the most original and prophetic fashion designers of the twentieth century. His minimalist knit garments, executed in psychedelic colors and geometric patterns, are visually striking. But Gernreich’s clothes were more than fashion. They were intended to free women’s bodies. All the garments in the exhibition are on loan from Peggy Moffitt, the designer’s primary model and muse. The exhibition includes photographs of Moffitt in Gernreich’s designs and the first fashion video. Read the press release.
