Go Figure: The Fashion Silhouette & the Female Form

November 13 - May 31, 2018
Terrace Level Showcases

Curated by Rachel Doran ('19), "Go Figure: The Fashion Silhouette & the Female Form" explores perceptions and representations of Euro-American beauty ideals across the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Through outerwear and undergarments, this historical costume exhibition shows how women’s bodies have been manipulated and shaped to fit fashionable silhouettes at different moments in time. From corsetry and girdles to diet and exercise, shaping the human body is critical to fashion change and illustrates the fluctuating and dynamic nature of socio-cultural conceptions of “beauty.” The exhibit is funded by the Charlotte Jirousek Undergraduate Research Fellowship in the Cornell Costume and Textile Collection.
