Vintage News | Beg, borrow and deal: The politics of mounting a must-see fashion show
As Michelle Tolini Finamore packed her bags for a trip to Paris in late March, her thoughts weren’t on leaving room for the typical souvenirs. As curator of fashion arts at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, her goal was to borrow a 50-year-old suit. Finamore’s next show, which has the working title of Gender Bending Fashion, looks at the cultural, social and sartorial exchange between men’s and women’s clothing and identity from the 1920s to the present.
