As part of The Met’s 150th anniversary celebration, the Costume Institute presents this exhibition that highlights how fashion creates associations that blur the lines between past, present and future. Linear and nonlinear timelines help explain the relationship between time and fashion, along with clothing from the 1870s and 1880s being paired with those from more current times. Finally, the future of fashion will be touched upon, branching into subjects surrounding longevity and sustainability.
