Fashion lovers, don't say I didn't warn you! LACMA's Fashioning Fashion exhibit flies the coop next month, so take it in before it's too late. It's much like the zeitgeist Costume Institute exhibit in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, except that the exhibit doesn't go beyond the 1920's.

In the beginning, viewers walk through plain white ensembles, so visitors can focus the evolution of cut and style without being distracted by textiles and accessories. Then you round the corner and BOOM! Colors and textures in full bloom, from Moulin Rouge-like Parisian hooker get-ups a la Toulouse Loutrec to the craziness of Marie Antionette styles of the late 1700's.
