This will be MoMA’s first fashion-centric exhibition in 73 years (it presented Are Clothes Modern? In 1944) and will take a look at 99 items, documenting their significance over the past century. Pieces include Diane von Furstenberg’s 1974 wrap dress, Charles James’ 1932 “Taxi” dress, a Fruit of the Loom T-shirt and other articles that have become the fabric of American culture.
