On the Upper East Side, The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted an evening cocktail reception to fête the Costume Institutes fall 2023 exhibition, Women Dressing Women, co-curated by Mellissa Huber and Karen Van Godtsenhoven. The exhibition features looks from The Met’s permanent collection and explores the creative legacy of women fashion designers, tracing a lineage of makers from the turn of the twentieth century to the present-day designers, emerging voices, and forgotten histories alike.

“We had a sort of multi-tiered approach to curating Women Dressing Women. We knew that anything that we showed, we wanted to either already own or collect to bring into the collection. We had our incredible permanent collection at the Costume Institute to draw from as our starting point,” co-curator Karen Van Godtsenhoven told Vogue. “When collecting new pieces, we tried to focus on including just as many designers as possible, creating a nice assortment across time, which we organized around this broader trajectory looking at not only women’s role in fashion but fashion’s role for women too, through four critical notions of anonymity, visibility, agency, and absence or omission.
