Fashion Underground: The World of Susanne Bartsch was an international fashion extravaganza that placed some of the most beautiful pieces all in one location showcased at the Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, NY.
Countries represented their most esteemed fashions in the Fashion Underground Exhibition. The World of Susanne Bartsch was designed for several locations such as London, New York, Tokyo, Istanbul, Madrid, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sydney, New Delhi, Mumbai, Antwerp, Copenhagen, Shanghai, Seoul and much more.
Some of my favorite fashions were in the “New York” exhibit. I enjoyed the smooth transition from day to evening wear including outfits used for work and cocktail hour. I learned a few things that I had not known before. One of the original designers from New York mimicked the designs from Paris.
However, after World War II, New York designers began to express their creativity in clothing. Eventually, the mass production of clothes no longer took precedence over the creative aspect of the design in clothes. With the combination of individuality and self-expression New York eventually soared into a prominent fashion city.
The clothes from Mexico City was equally enjoyable. The colorful ensemble recognized the bright cultural colors often worn by the natives of Mexico City. The sneakers were yellow, red and black. There were also various shades of green and blue. All of those colors were in one pair of sneakers. It was beautiful. The sneakers matched with a black jacket and shirt with a laced black and beige skirt was stunning. Believe it or not, the ensemble was casually chic.
Overall, I had a good time exploring the fashions from around the world. Here are a few tips about the Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology. Be sure to check the calendar for the hours of operations before your visit. Call ahead to find out what is the featured exhibit and how long it will be available for viewing.
