Fashion is a circus. There is the excitement and masquerade of dressing to please others and ourselves, and the bravery of the ring-leaders of fashion, those who take risks, break rules and act as renegades. The exhibit “Greatest Show on Earth: Fashion Circus” features a big-top display of fashion, with main attractions including The Grandstand, where historical exoticism meets couture; The Calliope and Side Show groupings that are not for the faint of heart, but rather take one to the zany side of life; Caged Animals, which shows the ferocity of fashion through animal prints and furs; and Le Cirque, a collection of designer garments to counter balance the absurdity of the side show.
Fee: Free and open to the public.
