Friends Lecture: Sandy Schreier: In Pursuit of Fashion
With generous support from the Mark and Mary Goff Fiterman Fund, please join us for the September Friend’s lecture featuring American fashion historian, Sandy Schreier. Ms. Schreier has been called ‘the worlds largest private collector of couture clothing.’ Visually arresting and historically significant, her collection was the subject of an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) that ran from November 2019 to September 2020 called “In Pursuit of Fashion.” This trove of 20th Century French and American couture and ready-to-wear clothing was collected not as a wardrobe, but in appreciation of this form of creative expression.
Before the lecture, Ms. Schreier will personally sign copies of her book which features the exhibition pieces and promised gifts from her collection to the MET Costume Institute. Her book, “In Pursuit of Fashion”, is available to purchase through The Store at Mia. Purchase of a book does not guarantee a lecture ticket.
