Brooklyn Museum Gives It’s Costume Collection to the Met

December 17, 2008

“Although widely considered one of the best in the world, the Brooklyn costume collection has been out of public view for more than a decade. Under an agreement between the two museums that is to take effect in January, the Met will integrate the collection into its own Costume Institute. Still, it will formally retain a separate identity of sorts: it will be known as the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.” -The New York Times, December 16th.

Am I the only one who thinks this is awesome?? I love the classic, cool look of the costumes, each with sophistication of their own. I can totally see this as inspiration to a fashion line or something. Or some great styling ideas. 😉 I’ll have to check it out when it debuts in New York in January.
