Everyone at the FIDM Museum is so excited that High Style: Betsy Bloomingdale and the Haute Couture is now open to the public! Curators Christina Johnson and Kevin Jones have been working on this exhibition for 3 years and all of their careful planning has resulted in a fantastic exhibition. We plan to feature exhibition related content on our blog over the next few weeks, so stick with us! In the meantime, here are a few photos from the exhibition opening party.
