Paris Capital of Fashion

https://www.fitnyc.edu/museum/exhibitions/paris-capital-fashion.php

Small museums have much to teach.   This show at FIT connects haute couture (invented by an Englishman, BTW) with French history, and also contrasts it with England and the US. It is well done.

For me it was horizon broadening, but not for the missus.  When she was a little girl, her dad bought her a book on the history of fashion.  She and her sister sewed historical costumes for their Barbies. 

Worth a visit.
