A Century of Style

The Friends of the Orinda Library invite you to a docent lecture on the de Young Museum’s exhibition, FASHIONING SAN FRANCISCO: A Century of Style. The lecture will take place on Thursday, May 23rd from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Orinda Library Auditorium.

Explore the history of San Francisco through fashion. Featuring one of the most iconic collections of 20th- and 21st-century women’s clothing in the United States, this exhibition includes 100 collection highlights, along with local loans of high fashion and haute couture. The first major presentation of the de Young’s costume collection in over 35 years, it showcases designs from French couturiers, Japanese avant-garde designers, and other pillars of the fashion industry, including Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Christopher John Rogers, Comme des Garçons, and Rodarte. The designs on view, many never shown before, reflect San Francisco’s long-standing tradition of self-expression through fashion.

Seats are first come, first serve, so arrive a bit early to secure your place for this very special presentation.
