Treasures of Fashion: the aesthetic sense of Valerie Steele


Dr. Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at FIT, guest curates a new exhibition at the Kobe Fashion Museum, Treasures of Fashion ― the aesthetic sense of Valerie Steele. For this exhibition, Steele selected approximately 150 items from the collection of the Kobe Fashion Museum, including rococo-style Western dresses dating from the 18th century to modern times, as well as fashion photographs, to shine a spotlight on their collection from a new perspective.
