With the rise of the internet, the phenomenon of the supermodel and expansion of globalism, the lines between fashion, art and commerce blurred even more during the 1990s. The first-ever fashion exhibition at the El Paso Museum of Art features haute couture and ready-to-wear garments from designers like Gianni Versace, Givenchy, Dior and more.
Organized by the McNay Art Museum, “Fashion Nirvana: Runway to Everyday” is a vibrant journey through the world of design.
