Exhibition: ¡Moda Hoy! Latin American and Latinx Fashion Design Today — Closes
Due to unexpected maintenance issues, the ¡Moda Hoy! exhibition closed on August 27. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check the MFIT website for future exhibition schedules.
For decades, fashion designers of Latin American descent such as Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, and Haider Ackermann have been central figures of the fashion industry. Their successes have paved the way for new generations of talented designers including Gabriela Hearst, Carla Fernández, and Willy Chavarria. These represent only a few of the emerging designers who are making their mark on the fashion scene by creating for famous fashion houses, winning prestigious awards, and dressing celebrity clients.
¡Moda Hoy! Latin American and Latinx Fashion Design Today includes creators from Latin American countries, as well as designers of Latin American heritage living and working in the United States and Europe who are often referred to as Hispanic, Latino/Latina, or the gender-neutral term Latinx. Featuring more than 60 objects from the museum’s permanent collection, including many new acquisitions, the exhibition rejects the notion of a singular Latin American style, to focus instead on the diversity of talent present today in Latin America and its diaspora.
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
