Los Angeles, USA
Houses a significant collection of over 10000 costumes, accessories, and textiles from the 18th Century through the present day, including film and theater costumes. Often showcases designs from the latest Hollywood movies
No fixed arrangement of the own collection but varying thematic exhibitions on one specific designer or a fashion-related subject, that show a selection of pieces from the collection alongside pieces on loan. The starting point for each new exhibition is an overall concept, focussing not merely on clothing but on an entire context: the designer’s various sources of inspiration, links with other art disciplines, and so on.
