The Museum of Vancouver is launching Art Deco Chic next month. Starting March 8, 2012, this new exhibition will showcase the popular design style from the 1920s. Visitors can browse over 65 original garments from around the world and a collection that was worn locally.
From the Museum of Vancouver: “Notable Vancouver items on display include a black beaded gown worn to the opening of the Commodore Cabaret in 1929 and a red and gold lamé evening dress made from fabric depicting the battles of the Trojan War.
Many items on show are exquisite designer dresses with labels such as Chanel, Lanvin, Vionnet, Patou, and Schiaparelli. To contrast these high fashion items is a piece from the MOV’s collection – a modest, yet stylish, navy polka dot dress made by the Aurora Dress Company of Vancouver around 1927.”
Thanks to Ivan Sayers and Claus Jahnke, who are sharing their private collections, you can check out stylish handbags, shoes, jewelry, and more.
I have two passes for opening night of the exhibition on March 7th. Attendees are encouraged to wear vintage glam while they enjoy champagne and other refreshments. Here’s how you can enter to win you way in:
