Exposed: A History of Lingerie

HistoryofLingerie

This past Tuesday, the Journelle’s took a little inspiration trip three short blocks away to the Museum at FIT to peep the exhibit, “Exposed: A History of Lingerie.” What can we say? We love history. And lingerie (obviii), so taking the morning off to check this out was a no-brainer. Curated by Colleen Hill, who gave us a private tour, the exhibit dates back to 1770 with a silk whalebone corset and extends to modern day with a lacy cobalt La Perla set. Honorable mentions to a fabulous taffeta petticoat from Christian Dior and a silk charmeuse and lace teddy from Patricia Fieldwalker. Ladies take note, this exhibit is a must-see.

  • Such an honour to be included in this exhibition. My design philosophy has always been to create elegant, timeless lingerie that doesn’t rely on passing trends. My thanks to those at FIT who chose one of my pieces as an example of how lingerie has become a major influence in contemporary fashion.
