kitty: Fashion Exhibitions 2012

Alexander McQueen Exhibition

In 2011, did museums finally realize that being fashionable means that your empty hallow halls could be filled with long lines or people clamoring to see the current exhibit? Given the record breaking success last year at the Met with the Alexander McQueen exhibit "Savage Beauty", Yohji Yamamoto exhibit at the V&A in London, Balenciaga and Spain at the de Young in San Francisco, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and many more it looks like 2012 is going to be really exciting for the Historical Fashion Fans.

I am sure there are other exhibitions out there, so this list is by no means complete in any way, but after a short google search these were the ones I found. If you know of others, please drop me an email. If I find out others I will happily post them.
