Frist Center for the Visual Arts. I always have a good time exploring the museum, but this trip was especially exciting. The Frist is currently hosting a collection of couture clothing and fashion photographs from the Golden Age of Couture (1947-1957). In a word, the dresses were breathtaking. So many of the silhouettes are as wearable now as their were in the 50s, and the level of craftsmanship in each piece is almost unfathomable in today's world of mass production.
The dress pictured above was one of my favorites from the exhibit. Worn by Princess Margaret in 1951, this Jean Dessès cocktail gown is even more stunning in person than it is in photographs.
If you're around Nashville, you really should check out the exhibit. The pieces will remain on display until September 12. For information about tickets and more images from the show, click here to visit the Frist's website.
