A Fabulous Fashion Opening

The Library was delighted to open our new exhibition, Fabulous Fashion, with an elegant reception on June 9, 2022. Sixty members and guests attended the event, enjoying wine, light refreshments, and a first look at the glamorous exhibition of photographs, historical images, and fashion-related books.

At left: Fashion-related images range from the contemporary (personified here by Lady Gaga) back to the 18th century (featuring the Chevalier d'Eon).

Many guests dressed up for the occasion, including trustee Jeannette Watson Sanger and Alexander Sanger.

Fabulous Fashion is open to the public in the Peluso Family Exhibition Gallery whenever the Library is open through January 15, 2023. More details about the exhibition can be found here.


Fabulous Fashion is generously supported by The Arthur F. and Alice E. Adams Foundation, Bloomingdale’s, and The Felicia Fund.
