Just in time for Halloween this year, The Metropolitan Museum of Art presents an in depth study on nineteenth and early twentieth century mourning attire. Examining both the cultural undertones, as well as the high fashion sartorial standards, this exhibition tracks the thematic evolution of bereavement over a hundred year period. Expect extravagant Victorian and Edwardian ensembles all in the deepest black set against striking white gallery walls. This is dark fashion as its most primitive and perhaps authentic. The show runs Oct. 15, 2014 - February 2015.
