Women's Fashion and National Identity

There's a wonderful show on right now at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC called American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity. It's an exploration of "archetypes of American femininity through dress" and features costumes worn from 1890 to 1940, all  beautifully exhibited in appropriate period settings. I really have to make it there to see this as I'm a big fan of vintage fashion.
This is an exhibit in the process of being set up.....Love the ornate decor.
