Museum Visit- Claire McCardell

Claire McCardell Museum Visit!

In honor of the time-honored tradition that we used to have at Parsons, before the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute‘s current incarnation, the Junior classes would go into this basement of the Museum and get to see the inside and outside her garments.

Drool with me over the amazing technique and designer from a truly American fashion designer icon.

You can’t not learn from her constructions and see the grain in her garments!

Know your history :0)
