About the Exhibit

Vintage Vision: The Art of Gaztte du Bon Ton originated as a physical exhibit at Cornell's Albert R. Mann Library in spring of 2016. In conjunction with the art and history portions recreated here, students from the Fiber Science and Apparel Design program constructed half-scale versions of dresses featured in the artwork to be displayed.

Both versions of Vintage Vision were curated by Karl Rozyn.
