The Shape of Fashion

Hey y'all! So a few weeks back I went to The Shape of Fashion exhibit at the Museum of History. There aren't a lot of fashion related events or exhibits that we have here in Raleigh. So I was excited that the art museum decided to add this exhibit for a limited time. The exhibit wasn't as big as I thought it would be but it was so much history jam packed into, I actually learned a lot about the shape of how sleeves, corsets, and styles formed and how and why they were created. Check out the pictures below to learn about the shape of fashion!
