Fashion and Design
Click below to embark on a 360° tour of PEM's Carl and Iris Barrel Apfel Gallery of Fashion and Design. Just click on the rings to move throughout the space and use your mouse or keyboard to zoom in/out and to look all around.
PEM’s Fashion and Design gallery invites visitors to consider that we are designing creatures who continually manipulate, respond to, and mold our changing world. Whether designing for self-adornment or for use, this installation unifies two traditionally disparate collecting fields to better understand what underlies our motivations and capacity for designing ourselves and the world around us. Ensembles from the Iris Apfel Rare Bird of Fashion collection celebrate the exuberant remixing and inventive styling of one of the world’s most prominent fashion icons, while constellations of unique and culturally significant works of design, fashion, and textiles explore distinctive and resourceful forms of creative expression.
