Exhibition Review: William Ivey Long

Some of you may know that I studied fashion history in college and graduate school. After an internship at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, I started focusing on writing about contemporary fashion history (portfolio here). This often included, but was not limited to, exhibition and book reviews. Recently, I've started writing again because I've missed it so much!

Just last week an exhibition review of William Ivey Long: Costume Design 2007 - 2016 was published through the Fashion Studies Journal out of the The New School at Parsons in NYC. I'm going to be writing a few more exhibition reviews, and hope to continue writing with the Fashion Studies Journal in the future!

Head over to the Fashion Studies Journal to take a look around, and stop in to read my review of the wonderful exhibition at the Mint Museum Uptown here in Charlotte, which is on display until June 3, 2018.
