This Thursday night, celebrate the Brooklyn Museum’s upcoming exhibit “American High Style: Fashioning a National Collection” with a giant piñata, fortune telling and tunes spun by Leo Fitzpatrick, Nate Lowman and David Benjamin Sherry. Oh, and get a chance to see the exhibit’s stunning fashions before they debut to the public on May 7th.
Signifying the Brooklyn Museum’s new relationship with the Costume Institute at the Met, the exhibit will bring 85 looks out of storage (as well as hats, shoes and sketches) by a set of American and French designers, including Christian Dior. So you can take a moment to marvel at fashion history while simultaneously taking advantage of the open bar.
