Have you ever wondered about the history of underwear? I mean we all (well most of us) wear some type of undergarments with our clothing. I can remember my grandmother buying me my first panty girdle; I was in the 5th grade! From your first bra, to your first pair of Spanx – underwear plays a major part in fashion.
This fall, the Frick Pittsburgh is uncovering the fascinating history of underwear design from the 18th-century to the present in its newest exhibition – Undressed: A History of Fashion in Underwear. The Frick Pittsburgh is the exclusive North American venue for this exhibition organized by London’s famed Victoria and Albert Museum.
Last week, I got a sneak peek of the amazing collection that features over 200 items. Make sure you check it out! It’s on display until January 7th 2018.
