In Pursuit of Fashion – the Sandy Schreier Collection at the Costume Institute at the Met Museum in New York photos by Miguel Villalobos

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The Costume Institute at the Met received gifts from the collector, Sandy Schreier, and they were celebrated in the current exhibition which goes from today till May 17th. Sandy is a collector in the purest sense, she collects but she never wears the garments or accessories she collects as an appreciation for the French and American couture and ready-to-wear of the twentieth century. The gifts celebrate the Mjuseum’s 150th anniversary and features approximately 80 of the 165 gifts including womenswear, accessories, and fashion illustrations.
