As designer continue to mine the depths of by- gone fashion eras for inspiration,museum exhibits are becoming more impor- tant catalysts for new trends. After this year ’s obsession with the Windsor et,look for lots of flowing toga trends a the fashion world pays hom- age to Greek classicism with the Metropolitan Museum of Art ’s Costume Institute block- buster,"Goddess,"opening on May 1.
Among the plans for the show,Harold Koda,curator in charge of the Costume Institute,is organizing clothes and accessories from the Empire and Directoire peri- ods as examples of explicit classicism,which will be dis- played alongside works by Nattier,David,Ingres and Prud ’hon.Designs of the 20th century will then be juxta- posed with costumes created for Isadora Duncan ’s dance performances and from films including "Medea "and "One Touch of Venus."Plus,look for a big turnout at the Met ’s annual "Party of the Year "to kick off the exhibit on April 28,considering any designer worth his salt wouldn ’t miss an opportunity to kiss the sandal-clad feet of co-chair Nicole Kidman,or,heck, those of co-chairs Anna Wintour and Gucci Group cre- ative director Tom Ford,too.
