FIDM Museum Blog

The other day I discovered a wonderful website — the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum’s blog! FIDM is located in Los Angeles, but you can visit their blog here for a taste of what the museum’s collection is like if you can’t get over there any time soon!

Not only do they post pictures of interesting, gorgeous historical garments regularly, but there’s always a bit of background on each item; something for your mind as well as your eyes!

And of course, here are two of my favorite items from their more recent posts:

This dress is covered with 3-D silk organza flowers. Isn't the detail stunning?

And of course, we all thought the detail on this evening coat was scrumptious -- to say nothing of the color!

Here’s the link again: http://blog.fidmmuseum.org/museum/. Go and have a look — it’s definitely worth your while!
