Museum worthy fashion.

For all you in Boston or New York, you should definitely check out these two exhibits. The first is The Metropolitan Museum of Art attempt at going high tech with blog.mode: addressing fashion. I have a slight obsession with the Costume Institute so I think this exhibit is definitely worth while- at least to see the fabulous  L' Air du Temps dress designed by Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci or the Vivienne Westwood platform pumps circa 1990 up close and personal. The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston has their National Design Triennial complete with designs from Nike, Thom Browne and Kid Robot. I haven't been to the ICA, but this exhibit sounds COOL. This isn't the first time clothing has been on display as works of art, but for some reason these exhibitions seem totally worth while.
