Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire

August 24, 2017



In 2014, the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
welcomed an incredible exhibition on mourning fashion.
The ensembles, many of which were exhibited for the first time, revealed
the aesthetic development and cultural implications of mourning fashion
of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Nel 2014, presso il Costume Institute del Metropolitan Museum of Art
è stata allestita un'incredibile mostra incentrata sull'abbigliamento da lutto.
Gli abiti presentati, molti dei quali esposti al pubblico per la prima volta, rivelano 
l'evoluzione estetica e culturale dell'abito funerario tra l'XIX e il XX secolo.
